Children and families are invited to participate in a fun evening filled with brain science activities JUST FOR KIDS!
Brain Night, presented by UTHealth Neuroscience Research Center, is packed with activity booths aimed to educate children and families about how the brain works and to spark an interest in neuroscience at an early age. Demonstration topics 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, families have the opportunity to handle an actual human brain, one of our most popular demonstrations. At the close of the event, children receive souvenirs and walk away with an eagerness for learning more about the brain.
