As part of National Earth Science Week, the Department of Earth and Environmental Science presents for its BAD MOVIE NIGHT "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!", a horrible film that has an equally horrible depiction of science, specifically, meteorology, astronomy and pretty much anything that is logical. Siobahn Morgan will provide commentary concerning the bad science, as well as general bad acting and special effects. Free, but not for the faint of heart or anyone who can't tolerate bad movies.
