Where are we from? Do we have a common ancestor? How closely related are members of the human family? In this program, we will apply DNA sequencing to unravel the genealogical history of the human species and trace the migration route they took to populate the globe. In this show, we will learn how to reproduce this evolutionary picture using mitochondrial DNA, Y chromosomes, and micro-satellite DNA.

Friday evenings are for family fun with these interactive performances that connect science with your everyday life. The UWM Science Bag educates as it entertains. Each one-hour show is free and designed for the curious, ages 8 to 108. Topics change monthly. 2017 marks our 45th year of providing free, family-friendly science education to the Greater Milwaukee community.

Presentations are held in Room 137 of the Physics Building, at the corner of E. Kenwood Blvd. and N. Cramer St., UWM Campus.
