Join us for a special evening in honor of Darwin Day, an annual event to commemorate the birthday of Charles Darwin. This year’s event coincides with the opening of a traveling exhibit entitled “Megalodon: The Largest Shark That Ever Lived”.

To kick off the exhibit, biologist Adam Summers will tell us about sharks as inspiration for biomaterials design and how these ancient fishes swim fast and grow huge. Find out what we have learned since Darwin’s time about the underwater world of sharks and other fishes.

The talk is FREE and open to the public.
