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

During this unique program, members of the community engage with each other and with leading scholars of origins science to investigate cosmology, evolutionary theory, and more. Each evening begins with a presentation by a world-class researcher, followed by dinner and open discussion among all the participants. Below are links to videos of the individual talks alphabetical by presenter with broad topic, and below that, lectures arranged chronologically by season.
