Description

McMaster Children & Youth University presents

Rumours, Conspiracies & Lies! Oh My! How to Separate Fact from Fiction

with Dr. Mark Busser

Sometimes we hear rumours or stories about secret agents scheming to control some of history's big events or trying to trick us into believing science that isn’t true. These stories can be a lot of fun! Yet sometimes these “conspiracy theories” can confuse us and cause problems of their own. Join us as we discover the kind of tools investigators use to spot fake news, debunk pseudo-science, and separate fact from fiction.

This is the last lecture of the 2018-2019 season. Children who have attended 6 or more lectures this year will be awarded a certificate at the end of this lecture.

Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Adults must also register. Please bring ticket to be admitted.
