How do we decide what to believe?
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, How do we decide what to believe? OpenScienceLAB, a project of Chabot Space & Science Center, seeks to explore this fundamental question and its implications for science education. As one of Northern California’s leading informal science centers, we strive to continually improve the way we provide science information and experiences for our visitors. We believe a deeper understanding of how knowledge is acquired is an essential part of this endeavor.
On this page we will be posting links to articles, blogs, events and discussions around this topic. Please join in the discussion by posting your comments on our blog pages or email us direct at OpenScience@ChabotSpace.org.
