2018 Brain Night for Kids

The Health Museum, 1515 Hermann Drive
Thursday, March 15, 2018

 

Part of International Brain Awareness Week

This annual event gives elementary school children and their families an opportunity to learn about neuroscience through experiments and activities designed JUST FOR KIDS!

The goal of Brain Night is to increase their awareness of how the brain works and possibly create a new generation of neuroscientists.  Demonstrations range from bike-helmet safety, brain reflexes, eye-hand coordination and comparing brains of different species. Children are encouraged to build their own nerve cell with pipe-cleaners and get a face painting of a nerve cell or brain. In addition, the children have the opportunity to touch an actual human brain.
