Mike the Mad Biologist

If You’re at the Smithsonian…

…make sure you check out the Darwin exhibit and the ant exhibit at the National Museum of Natural History. The Darwin exhibit (TEH DARWINISMZ!!) has a really good introduction to natural selection that’s readily accessible for non-biologists–I hope school trips take advantage of this exhibit and visit it (TEH EVOLUTIONISMZ!!). The ant exhibit has some amazing pictures, as well as a pretty cool leafcutter colony.
