First Fridays Science Discussion | Natural History Museum Of Los Angeles


One of the many great attributes of science is that it allows us to use the tools of today to understand where we have been and to predict where we are going. Will we be walking among woolly mammoths? Will we be able to harness the power of your brain to be more creative? Is climate change causing us to evolve? Will we live in a building designed by termites? Are we doomed to go the way of the dinosaur? Or, perhaps, will we live forever? This is not science fiction of the future but the real science that is affecting our life today. Join us as we look at the latest happenings in the fields of genetics, neuroscience, evolution, biomimicry, paleontology and human biology and learn how the science of today is paving the way for a fascinating journey into our future!
