SkepchickCon is the collection of science and critical thinking panels and activities that Skepchick hosts at CONvergence, a four-day science fiction and fantasy conference held every summer in the beautiful Minneapolis area. In addition to panels and activities in the CONvergence Sandbox room, we host science and art activities and salons (focused small-group discussions) in the Skepchick Space Lab all day long.
Plus, every night, you can meet Skepchick Network contributors and our special guests in the Skepchick Space Lab party room, where we’ll have more info on science and critical thinking as well as ongoing games of Periodic Table Bingo, with prizes!
You get four days of science, skepticism, and all-around geektasticness for the cost of a CONvergence badge—$120 for all four days. In addition to SkepchickCON events, the badge gives you access to everything happening at CONvergence, including all panels and workshops, multiple themed parties, the costume masquerade, and more.
Donate to SkepchickCON
We don’t charge admission to the panels, activities, or salons, and we don’t get a cut of ticket sales from CONvergence, so 100% of the cost of materials, supplies, and travel is covered by donations. We use the funds we raise to print up informational flyers, purchase activity supplies, and host the nightly after-hours Skepchick room where all CONvergence attendees can stop by and find out more about science, critical thinking, and social justice issues.
