At 7 p.m. Tuesday, a panel of academics will meet for a spirited discussion of their own, when they take on the topic of teaching evolution in the 21st century, moderated by museum executive director Karl Hutterer. Guests include Westmont College biology professor Jeffery Schloss, UCSB College of Creative Studies Dean Bruce Tiffney, SBCC biology professor Larry J. Friesen and Dr. Sandford. more
