Evolution

This week, Abby, Marina, and Lauren brought a little diversity into our workshops—biodiversity that is. Through fun true or false games and rotating stations, the workshop brought fossils back to life through conversation about the fundamentals of evolution and how fossils and lineage trees can map out life. We started our workshop with an open discussion about evolution and then broke out with crazy facts for both mentees and mentors to choose a side and discuss. Then we went straight into our fantastic stations—Survivor (a battle of whose animal was the fittest for survival), mapping lineage trees to use our knowledge to see evolutionary progressions, and fossil making to explain the importance of fossils. We finally wrapped up with adaptations we would make to best fit our own lives.
