Let's Talk Misinformation

Student
Fake news is big news. That is to say, misinformation has become a hot topic over the past decade. Outside of the world of politics, the effects of misinformation have been most keenly felt in the world of STEM. Whether it is COVID-19 and vaccines, the use of stem cells, the effects of broadband cellular communication technology on the human body, or climate change, misinformation has proven to be a dangerous stumbling block in developing new ways to solve current and old problems. Explore the growth of misinformation in STEM. Untangle complex ideas and build skills to tackle this growing problem.  A multi-disciplinary panel will guide the discussion on misinformation, the role of trust and how trust is built and give examples of misinformation and why it took hold.
