What Darwin Didn’t Know, The Modern Science of Evolution (Scobie)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

What Darwin Didn't Know: The Modern Science of Evolution

This will be a video lecture course delivered by Scott Solomon, PhD of Rice university, and hosted by Scobie, examining many of the core concepts of evolution, and the staggering evidence that has mounted for this fundamental life theory since its inception, from virtually every branch of science.

The 30-minute video lectures are from one of the highest-rated courses in “The Great Courses” series. We’ll watch them together, live in class, so that we can pause for discussion.

If paying close attention to a lecture for 30 minutes puts you to sleep, this is NOT the science course for you!

We will look at several key questions before each lecture. You’ll take notes when you notice a question being addressed, then attempt to answer the key questions directly after the lecture.

Achieving Credit will consist of:

  • an attendance minimum
  • notes for each lecture, taken in a google classroom document, and submitted
  • one modest outside project, to contribute richness to one of the many topics from the lectures.
