Discovery-after-Dark­: Science vs. Pseudo-Science

CSIRO Discovery, North Science Road
Black Mountain, ACT 2601
Friday, 22 November 2013, 5:00-8:00
Free Admission
Canberra Skeptics, in conjunction with CSIRO Discovery and Australian Science Communicators, will be hosting a Discovery-after-Dark as part of the Australian Skeptics National Convention 2013. This event will free and open to the public. It also doubles as the reception for Convention guests.

Experience the 'after hours' of science, with this Discovery-after-dark special. See what happens when science dresses down, takes off the labcoat and puts on some non OH&S approved footwear and takes on Science's daggy brother, Pseudo-Science.
Join Mystery Investigators, Dr Rachael Dunlop and Richard Saunders (the skeptical judge from TV's "The One - The Search for Australia's Most Gifted Psychic") and Prof. Chris French, head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit in the University of London and Dr Krissy Wilson, founder of Science of Anomalistic Phenomena (SOAP), in this after dark spectacular. From dowsing to spoon-bending, energy bracelets to cold reading, learn how to spot the fakes and determine the science from the pseudo-science while enjoying some free food and science-themed cocktails.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
