In addition, attendees have participated in different scientific workshops that serve as a complement to the subjects they see in their centers: biology -methods and tools for the study of wildlife, geology -minerals that form the most important rocks in Navarra-, microbiology -the microorganisms that surround us-, Chemistry -magical metals-, and physics -plasma lamp and Whimshurt machine-.

Science and evolution, a cycle for all audiences

On the other hand, the University of Navarra, through the Science Museum, promotes other activities of knowledge dissemination of science for the general public in the framework of the Science Weeks, as is the case of the cycle "Science and Evolution". Among the outstanding activities of this cycle, next Thursday, November 23 at 19:30h. in the Civivox of Iturrama (C/Esquiroz, 24), Javier Novo, Full Professor of Genetics at the University of Navarra will give the session: "The evolution that could have been: of extinctions and dinosaurs".
