SpeedyCamp NYC 2018

Introducing: SpeedyCamp NYC 2018!

SpeedyCamp is a fast-paced open conference on science and skepticism. Six people will give ten minute long presentations, along with 5 minutes of Q&A (for a total of 15 mins. each), and YOU can be one of them! If you are familiar with the older SkeptiCamp and BarCamp events, this like that, but speedier!

(No, this is NOT replacing SkeptiCamp. We are still planning to hold our larger SkeptiCamp NYC 2018 event towards the end of the year.)

Date and Time: June 10th, 2018 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST
Location: The Brooklyn Commons Cafe, 388 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217 (347) 987-4966
Cost: FREE! (Donations to New York City Skeptics would be nice.)
