Forskningsdagene - åpent for alle: "Havet brukes til transport og ferie, som matkammer og søppeldunk. Publikumsakvarier tilbyr levende kunnskap om hvordan vi påvirker havet og kan leve godt sammen med havet. Vi inviterer til en marin aften om mennesker og havet – bli med på reisen!" (This event it held in Norwegian.)
There is no scientific controversy over whether evolution is right and creationism is wrong. But do you know the scientific arguments for evolution? This evening, geneticist and popular science author Steve Jones will tell you "Why evolution is right and creationism is wrong". Even though there is no scientific controversy, this topic is still controversial. Eugenie C. Scott, the executive director of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE, USA) since 1987, will talk about why that is - and why we still need to defend evolution and other sciences in the classrooms - and elswhere.
This year at the annual Kristine Bonnevie lectures, the geneticist and popular science author Steve Jones from University College London will tell you "What sex really means". Eugenie C. Scott from The National Center for Science Education will draw on her long experience in defending science education in the U.S., and explain why communicating science is so important in her lecture "Defending evolution - and some other sciences". The Kristine Bonnevie lecture on evolutionary biology is part of the University’s annual celebration.
