astronomy and earth science on Nov. 29 and Dec. 13. — Jane J]

Evolution Speaker Series at The Arizona Science Center

Join the Arizona Science Center and The University of Arizona College of
Science for an exciting series of presentations about one of the most
controversial topics of our time.  Scientists from many fields work
together to discover the processes that create the current state of our
universe, our world, and ourselves.  The theory of evolution accounts
for
the origin of all matter, including the development of life itself.  We
are
proud to present these seven lectures that will illustrate the various
aspects of evolution.

  All lectures begin at 7 p.m. and are free to the public.  For
reservations
or more information, please email
