Six presenters—some scientists and some charlatans. Six topics—some fabricated and some factual. Can you sort the fact from fiction?
Join us for another edition of Real/Fake Science! All new presenters will confound you with their alternate facts and surprising truths. Gather together in Brooklyn's beloved Union Hall, sip local beers or mixed cocktails, and prepare to be regaled with tales of real and fake science, recounted by knowledgeable presenters hailing from a range of scientific disciplines.
Participants at the event will have the chance to compete for the distinction of "Most Discerning" in a lineup of topics ranging from the risks of excessive video game usage to the effects of pheromones. Be prepared to stow your smartphones and listen closely.
Only one daring contestant won the title of Most Discerning during the first edition; will you be up to the challenge? Come join us in testing your own scientific radar!
