SkepchickCON is the science and skepticism track of CONvergence, a four-day science fiction and fantasy conference held every summer in the beautiful Minneapolis area. This year, in addition to more science panels and Sandboxes (interactive workshops) than ever before, we are opening up our track room all day every day for ongoing small group and individual science and art activities and salons with the Skepchicks, Freethought Bloggers, and special guests.
Plus, every night, you can meet the Skepchicks and other scientists and skeptics in the Skepchick Space Lab party room, where we’ll have more info on science and skepticism as well as delicious chemistry demonstrations by mixologist Anne Sauer.
You get four days of science, skepticism, and all-around geektasticness for the cost of a CONvergence badge—$75 for all four days if you register by May 15, 2014. In addition to SkepchickCON events, the badge gives you access to everything happening at CONvergence, including all panels and workshops, multiple themed parties, the costume masquerade, and more.
Donate to SkepchickCON
We don’t charge admission to the panels or get any cut of ticket sales from CONvergence, so 100% of the cost of flying in guests and putting them up in the hotel is covered by donations. We also use the funds we raise to print up informational flyers and host the nightly after-hours Skepchick room where all CONvergence attendees can stop by and find out more about science and skepticism. If you can spare some cash, paypal your donation to skepchick (at) skepchick.org You can also help us by spreading the word!
