Welcome to the York Skeptics homepage. We are a group dedicated to the promotion of science, rationalism and critical thinking in North Yorkshire. Every month we meet up for a friendly discussion and a talk from a speaker about a subject relating to science and critical thinking. Meetings take place every fourth Monday of the month at 7:30pm in The Phoenix Inn.
We now have a blog, which you can find at yorkskeptics.blogspot.co.uk.

What's the talk about?
Following on from her well received talk on critical thinking for children last year, York Skeptics treasurer and Pod Delusion contributor Bethany Jenkins sets her sights on citizen science.
The phrase citizen science is becoming increasingly prevalent but how can we actually get involved? In this talk we'll look at how a number of citizen science projects work and what they actually entail.
