Ever wonder if ghosts are real? Want to learn how to capture ghosts on audio and video? How can you tell a real ghost from a fake? Learn about poltergeists. Is it true that teens tend to experience them more? A real ghost hunter from the San Francisco Ghost Society, Tommy Netzband, will talk about his experiences investigating ghosts and hauntings. He will also share some ghostly images and sounds he has caught on DVD. (But he won't bring any ghosts with him.) Get the info, then you decide what to believe!
For ages 12-18.
