In June 2018, I used to be voted one of many winners of ‘I’m a Scientist’ – which is a web-based platform to interact faculty youngsters in science the place throughout a two-week interval, I spoke to youngsters of all ages about why folks consider in conspiracy theories. On being voted a winner, I used to be awarded funding for public engagement actions.

To strive one thing totally different, I sought out artists from Greater than Minutes and gave them the duty to attract what we all know to this point in regards to the psychology of conspiracy theories. The artists listened to me give a lecture the place I mentioned what’s a conspiracy principle, why do folks consider in conspiracy theories and what’s the potential hurt; earlier than they spent the afternoon drawing the analysis.
