Neurotopia

Every year the folks at the Alliance for Science have themselves an essay contest. The topic is evolution-themed, and since 2009 is so relevant to Charles Darwin– being his 200th birthday and 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species– we asked students to identify a modern scientist that exemplifies the characteristics which led Darwin to make his monumental discoveries.



This year we had a very tight race… a 3 way tie for 3rd place. Do check out the winning essays, they are worth a read!
