Dig into 2015! Secret Science Club presents Paleoanthropologist Shara Bailey on Human Evolution

Jan 20, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

| Free

Several different species of humans (hominins) have existed over the last few million years. They’re gone now. All that’s left is good-old Homo sapiens. But don’t feel too lonely. At the next Secret Science Club, Shara Bailey introduces your long-lost cousins—Neandertals, Homo floresiensis (the “Hobbit”), Australopithecus, and more.

A physical anthropologist at NYU and the Center for the Study of Human Origins, Dr. Bailey delves into the history of human evolution. She asks:
–What hominin species existed before modern humans—or even co-existed with us?
–How did our human ancestors change as they evolved? How are we different, and where were the earliest Homo sapiens found?
–What can 3-D imaging, confocal microscopy, computer modeling, and genetic analysis of bones and teeth tell us about the lives, childhoods, and diets of our ancient ancestors?

Before & After
–Sip our early-modern cocktail, the Paleo Riot
–Stomp to Anthropocene grooves
–Bone up! Stick around for the taxonomically challenged Q&A
