The Bad Science Show is a fun and entertaining science incursion for secondary students that explores pseudoscience and critical thinking.
Packed full of magic, science and comedy, The Bad Science Show is performed by award-winning science communicator Nicholas J. Johnson.
In a world filled with fake news, alternative facts and pseudoscience how can teenagers separate the good science from the bad? The Bad Science Show doesn't just teach high school students vital critical thinking skills, it gets them screaming and laughing in excitement at the idea of applying them to the world around them.
"Bad Science had our students sitting on the edge of their seats...a real treat for staff and students."
Dela Salle College, Canberra
“Once again you provided a fantastic show for us. To keep over a hundred boys on the edge of their seats for an hour is an amazing achievement."
Scotch College, Melbourne
"The Bad Science Show was an amazing afternoon and it was a great learning experience and all the girls who attended were left mystified."
St Benedict's College, Sydney
This sixty-minute show explores:
The Placebo Effect: How swindlers sell bogus medical treatments and why we believe they work.
Paredolia: Why does the human brain see ghosts, UFOs and other strange things?
ESP Experiments: How scientists tried to prove mind-reading exists...and got it wrong.
Force & Pressure: How is it possible to walk barefoot on broken glass.
Water Divining: Is it possible to find water buried under the ground with just two sticks? And if not, why do so many people believe you can?
The Bad Science Show is designed to encourage students to apply the lessons of the science classroom to the world around them.
