“Professione cacciatore di Bufale” contest: the winners  have just been announced!

Following the great success of the contest “Bufale in rete: come riconoscerle!” promoted for the school year 2016-17 in collaboration with Istituto Pasteur Italia, a second edition, “Professione: cacciatore di bufale in rete!” was also launched and the winners have just been announced! The second edition of the contest was focused on the importance of allowing kids to become debunkers of fake news.

The aim of IBSA Foundation for scientific research and Istituto Pasteur Italia was to enhance a  digital literacy process in order to defeat fake news.

In the previous edition of the contest, students were asked to identify fake news online and draw a comic strip about them.

This year they have made a step further, and have learnt how to prove that these ‘scientific’ news are fake. In fact, in order to take part to the second contest, students had to become debunkers. Their task was not an analysis of all of the fake news circulating online, but they had to focus exclusively on the scientific ones, and had to illustrate the result via a comic strip.

And now… Here are the winners!
