#LoveLettersToScience and illustration of Charles Darwin


“Much love much trial, but what an utter desert is life without love.” — Charles Darwin

Express Your Love for Science

Help us celebrate the birthday of Charles Darwin on February 12 by sharing your love for science!

Find one of our #LoveLettersToScience mailboxes in the Canyon at NHMU or in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Utah and deliver us a short, handwritten love letter to science. Express your love or appreciation for "the principles of intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, scientific thinking, and hunger for truth as embodied in Charles Darwin" and we'll share it with the world!

We will be scanning and sharing these love letters here on our website and on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to inspire a love for science on Charles Darwin's birthday, just two days before Valentine's Day. 

If you cannot make it to campus to deliver a love letter in person, fill out the form at the bottom of this page to share your sentiments and we'll add your letter to the collection.
