When the SEC basketball tournament is over on Sunday, there will still be plenty of awesome Tampa Bay area events to participate in.  If you are like me...i.e. a HUGE fan of MOSI...then you'll want to head out to this event!  Here's the scoop - 

 

On March 23 from 6-7 p.m., Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) will host ‘Evolution and the Human Body,’ a lecture by USF professor of anthropology, Lorena Madrigal, exploring evolutionary theory and revealing common misconceptions about evolution.

 

The lecture will address questions on the human body as a product of evolution, and will review the various forces that impact the body.  After the presentation, participants are invited to tour Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS & The Story of the Heart. Pricing for the lecture is $25 for MOSI members and $35 for nonmembers.  To register for the lecture, visit www.campfun.org under “Current Science Programs,” or call (813) 987-6000.

 

Here's some background on the speaker, in case you're interested - Lorena Madrigal is a professor of anthropology at USF where she has taught for 20 years. She has published numerous papers on microevolutionary changes in the human species. She has served on editorial boards of major biological anthropology journals, and currently serves as vice-president of the American Association of Physical Anthropology.

 

Plus, MOSI got a ton of other activities to have fun with, so head over to their website, www.MOSI.org to get the info on those.  We'll have more great things to do in Tampa Bay, so we'll see you back here soon!
