Science Café – 11/9

Nov 9, 2016 at 5:00 PM
Baker Front Room

Most dinosaurs went extinct around 66 million years ago, but a small group of them survived and became one of the most diverse groups of vertebrate animals alive today: birds. These modern creatures could hold the key to understanding more about their ancient ancestors and vice versa.  Catherine Early, an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and graduate student in the Department of Biology, will present “Dinosaurs, Dodos and Ducks: A Bird’s-Eye View of Brain Evolution” at the next Ohio University Science Café. Early will showcase fossil replicas, 3D models of bird brains, and bone and feather specimens. The presentation will take place Wed., Nov. 9, at 5 p.m. in Baker Center Front Room.

The first 50 attendees will receive free coffee, and students can earn free t-shirts by asking questions.
