Duquesne University

2009 marked the bicentennial of the birth
of Charles Darwin.

The life and intellectual impact of Charles Darwin was celebrated in Pittsburgh with
a citywide series of events for children, teachers, students, and the general public.

Unique aspects of Darwin’s accomplishments were highlighted using the distinct abilities and resources of institutions throughout Pittsburgh. This unparalleled and ambitious partnership is coordinated by Duquesne University.

Many of the activities are still available, please find these to the right.
