The Institute for the Science of Origins – videos from the first season of the Origins Science Scholars Program!

During this unique nine-week program, members of the community engaged with each other and with leading scholars of origins science to investigate cosmology, evolutionary theory, and human evolution. Each evening began with a presentation by a world-class researcher, followed by dinner and open discussion among all the participants. Below are videos of the nine lectures from the Fall, 2010 program.
