Colgate University has come up with an excellent way to celebrate Darwin Day: Walk and think.
It seems that Charles Darwin was in the habit of taking a walk down a certain path every day, with the idea that this walking helped deepen his contemplations. So, on Darwin Day, Colgate University in Hamilton, New York will be dedicating a path as the Darwin Thinking Path, encouraging students to follow Darwin’s habit.
