What do You Reckon?

  • Have ALIENS from another planet landed on Earth? Can some people read YOUR mind? Is TELEKINESIS—what is that?— . . .? What is science? Can science answer ALL questions?

Share Your Opinion / Join in

  • See the Yip Yip stick, how science can be used to test explanations and claims, and share your point of view (e.g., can wearing jewellery made from certain crystals help to keep you healthy?).

Highly Relevant to Everyday Life

  • Understand the scientific method, how science is done, and the strengths and limitations of science. And more.

The secondary/adult version of this presentation includes:

  • What distinguishes science from other ways in which humans can experience the world?
  • Need there be conflict between science and religion?
  • How does science progress as a field?
  • How are descriptive and causal questions answered differently in science?
