Main Topic: Everything You Should Have Learned in Science Class, But Didn't

Music : Nicole Quinn & Ryan Kennedy 


Main Topic:

Science isn't a body of knowledge; it's a process. But how does this process really work? How does the scientific community operate? And how can we tell fact from fiction (or even know who to trust and why)? In this talk, we'll explore how scientific knowledge is properly gathered, vetted, and improved on. We'll debunk common myths about science and learn valuable fact-checking skills to safeguard ourselves against harmful pseudoscience - skills which we all should have received in high school (but which most of us didn't).

Speaker : "Holy Koolaid" Thomas Westbrook

Thomas Westbrook is the producer of the Youtube Channel "Holy Koolaid". He went from being a missionary kid in a former Soviet, Muslim country to being a full-time science communicator and secular activist. On Holy Koolaid they question everything because free thought and curiosity help us inoculate ourselves against abusive control tactics and bad ideas.
