SkeptiCal is the Northern California conference on science and skepticism, a day-long event with speakers and discussions on critical thinking.
SkeptiCal is a great opportunity to hear accomplished and entertaining scientists and critical thinkers speak about fascinating topics in an informal setting. To keep costs down, we use local speakers. Fortunately, living in northern California offers us wonderful choices for articulate scientists and other speakers. In the past, we have hosted scientists from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, several California State Universities, Stanford, NASA, Lawrence Livermore Laboratories, and many other notable institutions. We have covered a range of topics including GMOs, science denialism, climate change, science literacy, evolution, medical pseudoscience, extraterrestrials and astronomy.
There is something for everyone at SkeptiCal!
