Spot the Bull S…cience

What do the moon landings, global warming and vaccination all have in
common? They’re conspiracies perpetuated by scientists, right? WRONG!

To celebrate National Science Week, and to demonstrate just how hard it is
to get scientists to believe BS (bad science), The Science Nation is
holding a contest of intelligence, interrogation and intimidation that sees
a lineup of scientists each trying to have their peers believe complete and
utter BS.

Come along and join the most enjoyable experiment in BS you’ll ever see. *Spot
the Bull S…cience* is 90 minutes of science & laughs that promises to be
fun for (almost) everyone.

Events will be held on the following dates and cities:
