Real or Fake is a fun, participatory format, which trains citizens’ ability to discern science from pseudoscience. Scientists take stage with a compelling and yet controversial thesis based on true or false arguments. Audience discusses and votes. Scientists reveal the truth and how it can be uncovered. The citizens learn more about science and develop critical thinking skills, while the researchers leave their ivory tower, learn to communicate with general public and achieve a higher impact.
