Scientific information is shared through the news, advertisements, and social media platforms by sources with differing intentions and levels of expertise. Unfortunately, science misinformation, information that contradicts what established science tells us to be true, can mislead and confuse people and potentially endanger their health and wellbeing. Learn the science behind why misinformation is shared, why it's believed, and what we can do to address its spread across digital media. Use this collection to help prepare students to be critical consumers of science content and to make informed judgements about the science media they encounter.
This collection includes videos from the NOVA digital series, Misinformation Nation, with NOVA producer Alex Clark.
