Scientists present hot research topics with real and „alternative“ facts in a novel science entertainment format: The Real-or-Fake-Show!

About this Event

In times of real and self-proclaimed experts - who knows how to distinguish the “alternative facts” from the scientific facts? How do you train a critical awareness of the manipulability of scientific results - especially among young audiences?

Answer: Playful. You trick your audience deliberately, but only sometimes…

In the interactive, “scientific Real or Fake-Show”, renowned researchers present exciting topics from their fields of expertise in genetics, geoscience, medicine etc. enticing the audience to be enlightened or tricked. They either present fact-based stories that may sound too bizarre to be believed. Or they deliberately trick the audience with their cheeky but melodious false reports. The critical audience discusses, votes on the credibility and is then surprised by the resolution. Whether one is inspired by current research topics and the job description “scientist”, or whether one is practicing to recognize a swindle - in the end everyone comes out a bit more factual.
