The COVID-19 Misinformation Challenge

May 25 - May 29

The COVID-19 Misinformation Challenge… coming to an internet connection near you!

Join librarians at the  University of Maine’s Fogler Library to discern fact from fiction in popular media. Each day for 5 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 25th to May 29th. To join, sign up online.

We encourage everyone who’s interested 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 and Senta Sellers, senta.sellers@maine.edu.
