Teacher separates science fact from science fiction

From Nine To Noon, 9:46 am on 12 November 2015

Tania Lineham is an Invercargill science teacher who became so concerned about a lack of science literacy in her community she decided she had to do something about it. She says social media and cynical marketing means there is huge amount of information out there which looks and sounds real - but isn't. For the last few years she's been teaching students at James Hargest College the skills they need to critically analyse pseudoscience and has just been awarded the Prime Minister's Science Teacher prize for her work.
