Dr. Dawn M. Digrius from the California State University Office of the Chancellor will be the featured speaker at a special Central Valley Café Scientifique event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3 at Peeve’s Public House (1243 Fulton Mall). The event recognizes Darwin Day (celebrated globally Feb. 12) with a discussion about “Why we need Darwin in 2016: Sustainability, Evolution, and the Global Environment.” Digrius works on behalf of the STEM Collaborative under the CSU Student Engagement and Academic Initiatives and Partnerships. Dr. Madhusudan Katti, associate professor of vertebrate ecology in the Department of Biology, interviewed Digrius for his podcast “Science: A Candle In The Dark.” The podcast is available on the Central Valley Café Scientifique website. The Central Valley Café Scientifique generally meets on the first Monday of every month (except June – August). Guests explore ideas in science and technology, hear from local scientists, connect with other science enthusiasts and participate in making the Central Valley a place where science thrives.
