Public Lectures
and Symposia

Enhancing broad public knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts and research through science education is a vital component of the Stone Age Institute's mission. Through public outreach programs, the Stone Age Institute has been actively involved with educating the general public about a wide range of scientific fields, particularly those pertaining to human origins. To further this mission, the Stone Age Institute organizes and sponsors numerous public symposia and lectures.

An important project presented by the Stone Age Institute to further this mission is the Origins Symposium. This symposium was a free public symposium that took place for a full day in 2009, 2011, and 2013 on the Indiana University campus and featured presentations by I.U. faculty in physics, astronomy, geology, biology, paleontology, and anthropology involved in origins research.
