In 2003 the California Academy of Sciences closed its doors to begin construction on their new facility. The enterprising folks at City College pillaged the remains of the Academy's "Life Through Time" exhibit, procuring panels, murals, fossils, rock samples, and scale models — all in need of a loving home. After five years of installing, designing, revamping, and augmenting, "The Story of Time and Life" was born. Come join Ask a Scientist at City College for a special presentation of this massive multidisciplinary display. Professor Katryn Wiese will give a talk on the history of life from the Big Bang up through humans, followed by an open house tour of the show. Science faculty and exhibit builders will be there to chat and answer our questions as we walk the exhibit along all four floors of the Science Building.
