This series follows on from Critical Thinking, showing the way we think scientifically by considering skepticism, testing, blinding, uncertainty ethics and citizen science. Bridge8 edited, produced, animated and directed this series for TechNyou, an emerging technologies public information resource funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE).
The resource continues themes covered in the first critical thinking series on strengthening critical thinking with scepticism and analysis and introduces the basic elements of the scientific process.
