Darwin Day at the Gateway Science Museum Offers Education and Fun
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Several teachers from Chico schools have made arrangements to bring their classes. Others who are interested should contact the event coordinator, Chris Ivey, a professor in the Biological Sciences Department, California State University, Chico, at 530-898-5812.
Darwin Day is an international celebration of the life and discoveries of Charles Darwin. This is the second year that Darwin Day has been held in Chico, said Ivey.
“I hope this event will generate curiosity and enthusiasm for exploring the natural world,” said Ivey. “If we can provoke a sense of wonder and appreciation, even a tiny one, toward the majesty that surrounds us, and the seminal role of Darwin in helping us make sense of it, I will feel the celebration has been a success.”
The event is free and open to all. For more information on Darwin Day internationally, go to http://darwinday.org/ .
