Lecture Theatre A - University of Cambridge Admissions Office, New Museums site, Bene't Street, CB2 3PT

Join Students Against Pseudoscience in a unique and unconventional celebration of science in which students unite to tackle the pseudoscience crisis. We believe creative, compassionate and exciting new ways of countering misinformation are necessary as society’s information infrastructure continues to change drastically. Alongside encouraging students and young people to become familiar with accessible tools that help them take control of the quality of information they consume, we also advocate for a systemic change in the discourse around misinformation and pseudoscience. In this event, we show you what Students Against Pseudoscience is about and discuss what can be achieved when approaching this issue from the students’ perspective.

This event is run by members of Students Against Pseudoscience. Join Barty Wardell, Christopher Cheng, Inigo Howe, and Naomi van den Berg as they discuss effective ways forward in countering this crisis and why including young people in this discussion is crucial.
