Darwin Doolittle - Evolution and Zoology

Over 150 years ago Charles Darwin came up with the evolution theory.  His idea sounded so radical at the time that he waited 20 years before he published it!  Today evolution is known to be true, and like Darwin, we will observe animals to look for clues to why they and other 100 billion species managed to survive — while an estimated 5 billion species went extinct.  We will visit the SF Zoo, Aquarium by the Bay, local beaches, and California State University’s insect lab to learn about their unique survival characteristic.  We will undertake exciting activities — including dissecting a shark! — in our quest to develop our observation skills and critical thinking.

Amanda CarbajalPh.D. Candidate

Led byAmanda Carbajal

Amanda would have never become a scientist if it weren’t for her 10th-grade science teacher.  He strongly encouraged his students to become science majors in college and believed in their ability to do so.  Amanda took his encouragement to heart and studied biology. 

In addition to extensive research work, Amanda guided an SFSU’s sponsored science club in a local high school. She also worked with kids at the Boys & Girls Club and at YMCA After School programs.

Currently, Amanda is a Ph.D. candidate in Molecular, Developmental, and Cell Biology at UC Santa Cruz.  She has an M.S. in Physiology and Behavioral Biology, and B.S in Zoology/Animal Biology from San Francisco State University.
