The COVID-19 Misinformation Challenge (online)

May 25 - May 29

Join librarians at the University of Maine’s Fogler Library to discern fact from fiction in popular media. Each day for five days, you will receive an email with one or two tasks designed to test your knowledge of the novel coronavirus, while having fun and learning something new. You’ll spend time evaluating memes, doctors, news headlines, treatments, and some of the science behind the virus.

The challenge will take place from May 25–29. To join, sign up online.

Everyone who is interested is encouraged to sign up — even if you won’t have time to complete the challenges during the Challenge Week. All are welcome to participate, wherever you may live.

Have questions? Contact Jen Bonnet, jenbonnet@maine.edu or Senta Sellers, senta.sellers@maine.edu.
