You know what isn't Fake News? We are having two RTP180s in the month of October!

RTP180: Death will take place on our regularly scheduled 3rd Thursday at The Frontier in RTP. Then, October 24, we are taking our show on the road to NC State's Talley Student Union to hear 5 experts from our region give their take on the "Fake News" polluting our TVs, radios, newsfeeds, and Google searches.

Why is misinformation even a thing? What tools are out there to help us spot Fake News? How can you protect yourself against phishing? Hear about these topics & more at RTP180’s NC State Takeover: Fake News.

About RTP180

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our three founding universities, Park companies, and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. Doors open at 5:00pm for networking, beer & popcorn. Show kicks off at 6:00pm.

This year, we’ve chosen four themes for RTP180: Science, Human Communications & Interactions, Technology and Economic Development. Each of our monthly topics will fall under one of these themes.

The hashtag for this event is #RTP180. Get social with us by tagging @theRTP and @RTPFrontier.
