Join the Greenwood Public Library in celebrating mad science!  On Wed. Dec. 3rd, 2014, at 6:00 pm, your fellow patrons will vie for a $100.00 Amazon gift card by giving three-to-five-minute presentations describing their own unconventional theories of why and how the universe and/or those who inhabit it evolved the way they did.  The most outrageously bad hypothesis wins!

If you would just like to attend the event but don't want to present, click here to register.

If you would like to present, click here and fill out the form.

Presentations will be judged by a panel of four, based on the following criteria:

  1. Best use of science. Extrapolate your crazy theory from actual scientific research. Include real citations from academic sources.
  2. Most science covered. How much "real" science does your single theory explain? More is better.
  3. Most creative, surprising, and unconventional hypothesis. (Please keep your audience in mind. This is an adult program, but there may be young people present.)
  4. Best defense of theory. The funniest won't necessarily win. Do your best to really "prove" your theory.

Please address any questions to jconrad@greenwoodlibrary.us.
