What we're about

We get together to discuss various topics in science and skepticism. Anything from recent science news to rants about the latest paranormal or pseudoscience scams. We are also considering some field trips to local museums and events. Everyone is welcome. As you can see on the right of this text, this group doesn't have a group photo. Yes, I agree, we need to change that. So, if you have a suggestion, upload one or more pictures here: http://skeptics.meetup.com/127/photos/upload/?photoAlbumId=354586 Then we will post a poll, and the winner gets... (any suggestions? what should we give to the winner?)

This is your chance! When the Robinson Nature Center was being built, an area of archeological significance was found and protected on the property. This area contains clues to life in the mill town once known as Simpsonville, as well as potential evidence for earlier, Native American activity. During this special event, participants will assist in on-site archaeological excavation. Participants will receive training on basic techniques for uncovering, cataloging and archiving artifacts. The program also features a tour of the Simpsonville Mill ruins, and a hands-on discussion of artifacts found during previous excavations of the Simpsonville Mill. Come out and excavate Simpsonville's past! Register for one of three sessions. Due to the sensitive nature of the site, registration is limited to only twenty participants for each session and it is required that children under the age of 16 register with an adult.
