Event: Skeptech 2014

Home/Activism, Cons, Events, Skepticism, Technology/Event: Skeptech 2014

Do you like to skeptic? Do you ever wish you could skeptic more often but just don’t have the money? Live in the Twin Cities area?

Well now you’re in luck, because Skeptech 2: Electric Boogaloo is here to answer all your non-denominational prayers!

Obviously its second iteration, Skeptech is the brainchild of several college student organizations in the Minnesota area banding together under the banner of skepticism, humanism and secularism. Owing to that youthful and incredibly frugal nature (ramen don’t come cheap, boys), Skeptech is also an entirely free three-day conference.

Free doesn’t mean sub-par though, as the conference promises a variety of talented speakers from across the country, all weighing in about the intersection between science, critical thinking and innovation. Speakers include journalist Kate Greene, Friendly Atheist Hermant Mehta, and Skepchick’s very own Rebecca Watson and Heina Dadabhoy.

And if you can’t attend, then you can help keep Skeptech running, with an Indiegogo campaign just freshly minted! Either way, come this April, you can do your part to help make the Twin Cities a little more skeptical.

Skeptech 2014 will be held at the University of Minnesota from April 4th to 6th. Registration can be found here.
