Darwin Discovery Day was a big hit!
The MSU Museum's 11th annual Darwin Discovery Day was held on Sunday, February 8, 2015. It was a great afternoon of science, exploration and discovery. This year’s theme was “Teeth, Horns, Claws, Thorns: Nature’s Weapons.” Researchers and graduate students from all across MSU were at the MSU Museum to share their expertise and love of science with the public. Thank you to all who attended and our terrific voluteers who helped make DDD possible!
