The aim of our pedagogical experiment is to develop these skills by critical analysis of selected conspiracy theory related to physics phenomena. This paper describes the theoretical background and methodological notes to activity based on students’ analysis 5G technology conspiracy theory in the physics education at the upper secondary school.
