Educational Programs

CASS shares the commitment of its parent organisation, the Centre for Inquiry, to educating the public about critical thinking and scientific skepticism. CASS is currently developing school curricula designed to encourage children to think critically and scientifically about the world around them.

Skeptical Tracks

Science Fiction conventions are frequently a hotbed of scientific interest.  CASS is currently beginning to offer speakers to attend conventions to give talks or lead discussions on the cutting edge of science and the role of science and skepticism in society.

Climate Change Denial

The climate change debate has been fought largely outside of the peer-reviewed scientific literature, which has reached a strong consensus that not only is the environment warming but that anthropogenic greenhouse gases are a primary cause of that warming.  Instead, climate change deniers are seeking to promote their rhetoric in classrooms, both in schools and in universities.
