Biology students scrambled around in a courtyard Oct. 11 in an effort to learn about survival of the fittest. Students were given either a fork or a spoon and a cup. The objective was to collect at least the required amount of beans using only their given utensil and cup. After each trial the requirements would change whether it be the type of bean or the amount of beans needed.
