James Randi is coming to Sceptic School!

Ok, just give me a minute to calm myself down.

Breathe in… breathe out…

You know James Randi? World’s #1 sceptic? Founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation, Exposer of Uri Gellar, Peter Popoff and James Hydrick?

Also known for appearing on the first episode of Sesame Street, guest starring on Happy Days and getting kicked off the Don Lane Show. Plus he was on some show called Oprah.

Also also, he toured with Alice Cooper which is more than most of us can say.

Well, on the 29th of November James Randi will be making a personal visit to Sceptic School! Randi of course will be in Australia for the Australian Skeptics National Convention but has very kindly agreed to make a guest appearance at my school, McKinnon Secondary College.

Thanks to the support from our principal, Pitsa Binnion, he will be speaking to close to 300 year 7 students for around an hour and a half.

Needless to say, this is exciting. Very, very exciting.

I’d like to personally thank everybody in the Vic Skeptics who was involved in organising this and will be writing a (probably very long) report on how his visit went.

Stay tuned!

  1. Congratulations! He’s a lovely man, and a true legend. I’ve been lucky enough to have seen him speak live, too (and even had a group dinner with afterwards, omgomg).
    Your kids are in for a skeptical treat!
