BAHFest is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theory. Our brave speakers present their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determine who takes home the coveted BAHFest trophy.

And eternal glory, of course.

Submissions for BAHFest West, BAHFest East,
and BAHFest Seattle 2015 are now open!

Abby Howard of Junior Scientist Power Hour as the BAHFest East 2015 keynote speaker!

BAHFest returns to the Kresge Auditorium at MIT this September 19th.

Co-hosted by the Lecture Series Committee.
