Bold ideas change worlds

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”–Charles Darwin

Arizona State University celebrates Darwin‘s 200th birthday and commemorates the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species with Darwinfest – a creative scientific enterprise.

Join us for a multifaceted set of events, contests, lectures, artistic performances, educational workshops, tea parties, and even a look-alike contest.

Darwinfest celebrates how bold ideas and great scientific minds bring change to our understanding of biodiversity, the planet, the universe and ourselves.

Take part in a worldwide celebration of audacious thinking that still reverberates and fuels our medical discoveries, scientific accomplishments, arts and culture.
