Spot the Bull S…cience – 2018

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? Yeah, maybe not.

To demonstrate just how hard it is to get scientists to believe bad science (BS), the Science Nation is holding a contest of intelligence, interrogation and intrigue that sees a lineup of scientists trying to fool you and each other into believing complete 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.
