A discussion of human paleontology and the scientific career for high school students

On 11th June 2020, I will lead Acción Conciencia's first Ñuble and Biobio (Chile) talks with a conversation on human paleontology and the scientific career for high school students "Una breve introducción a la paleontologia humana". The Acción …
