For all animals, life begins as a tiny embryo in a small, enclosed space. However, embryonic development and reproductive patterns vary a lot across the animal kingdom; for example, some animals lay eggs, while others reproduce through live birth. This month at Science Under the Stars, EEB graduate student Chi-Chun Andy Fang will teach us all about animal development and reproduction, as well as the role of gene regulation in these two processes.
Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series in Austin, Texas. The talk will be held outdoors at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703. Here’s the schedule for this month’s event:
7:00 pm: Food and displays of local animals and plants found at Brackenridge Field Laboratory will be available.
7:15 pm-7:45 pm: Guided tour of the field lab (wear sturdy shoes and bring water)!
7:30 pm: Kid’s activities start! Meet with our children’s division for fun activities designed for all ages.
8:00 pm: Settle in, because the talk begins now!
