Real not Fake – how science works
Climate change does not exist and vaccinations cause autism? It does not have to be the obvious conspiracy theory which challenges our discernment. On the contrary: The devil is often in the details and pseudoscience and fake science pretend to be real science.
How can you reveal fake science and what are the criteria of reliable empirical research? From 22 January, you can find out about it within our new exhibition “Real not Fake – how science works”.
14 interactive exhibits and experiments show how you can assess the quality of scientific statements and publications. What is important for planning and conducting an experiment? How are measurement results monitored as neutrally as possible? How to ensure that the data collected is representative – and what is the difference between correlation and causality?
You can also express your own attitude towards science: Do you trust research results? When do you mistrust scientists?
