Passive Programming: Fake News

The goal that my boss has set out for the team this year is to try to educate our patrons.
Naturally, the first thing that came to time has been the rise of fake news, and how fake news has been influencing many people's decisions and just wreaking havoc all over the place.

I decided that we should teach our patrons how to differentiate between what's fake and what's real.

Thanks to an outside source, I didn't have to do too much work, this project was mostly just converting from images to text!

This is the display as whole. The three papers lying down are three headlines, two are false. Patrons are supposed to guess which is the real headline. If you flip them over, they display the answer.

Everything that is included on the poster board, is all in the handout. the main difference is that there are a few more details in this, as well as the a quick pictorial guide to different news outlets.
