Mooncake Festival 2015

26 Sep 2015, Science Centre Singapore

More than 200 Science alumni and their families and friends thronged the Science Centre Singapore’s exhibition halls on 26 September to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. They were invited to the Island Adventurer, an exhibition co-produced by the Faculty featuring the expeditions of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 – 1913) in Singapore and Southeast Asia, where he co-discovered with Charles Darwin the theory of evolution by natural selection. In celebration of the festival, the alumni also received mooncakes. Dr John van Wyhe, a historian of science from the NUS Department of Biological Sciences delivered a public talk “In Search of the Historical Wallace”. The creator of Darwin Online and Wallace Online, Dr van Wyhe is also writer and curator for the Island Adventurer.
