On Saturday, August 22nd, the Skeptical Society of St. Louis will be hosting the region’s third SkeptiCamp at the Ethical Society, 9001 Clayton Road, St. Louis, MO 63117, starting at 9am. This is an all-day event.
This year’s event includes presentations on topics as diverse as anti-vaccination, Creationism, neurology, climate change, financial skepticism, child psychology, the Fukishima disaster, incorporating skepticism and critical thinking into the classroom, the psychology of magic, solar energy, stuff your massage therapist tells you, anthropology, non-profit myths, and more. We will also be presenting a screening of “The Vaccination Chronicles” by Richard Saunders, former president of the Australian Skeptics and host of the Skeptic Zone podcast.
Pizza will be available for lunch and there will be a Skeptics in the Pub following the event. A silent auction for a signed copy of Bill Nye‘s latest book, “Undeniable,” and skeptical/scientific jewelry from Surlyramics will be available for purchase. The auction and a portion of the proceeds from the jewelry will help the Skeptical Society of St. Louis continue to promote science and critical thinking in the St. Louis community.
This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. You can find more information about this event on our website www.skepticalstl.com/skepticamp or by searching for Skeptical Society of St. Louis on Facebook or Meetup. We do ask that you RSVP for this event so we can get a good headcount for the lunch. You may RSVP here.
We hope to see you on Saturday, August 22, 2015!
