About Us

Charles Darwin, 1845

The Darwin Society is Christ’s College Cambridge’s Science Society and has been a part of Christ’s since 1937, it is freely open to anyone with an interest in science!

Naturally, we are named after one of our alumni, the famous naturalist Charles Darwin, whose work The Origin of Species became the foundation of modern biology.

We host free talks given by leading scientists which has included Nobel Laureates (refreshments included!), various swaps with other college science societies, a black tie dinner in Lent term and a free garden party after your exams.

As well as this, the Darwin Society seeks to support all Natural Scientists in Christ’s by helping to keep them informed, networked, and enthralled in science.

Join the fun!
