We are very excited to be holding an 'Amazing Brain' Festival on Tuesday 20th February, 3.45 to 6pm.
The festival will include a range of engaging activity and information stalls aimed at all ages, all exploring the human brain and mind. It will include a 2 metre high T-Rex which people can operate, as part of a range of activities exploring dinosaur brains. There will also be activities and stalls also exploring ancient ideas about the mind and brain. There will be refreshments and a bookstore too.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to explore "Your Amazing Brain", an exhibition which we are privileged to be hosting. It is designed and created by the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging,in partnership with Banbury Museum & Gallery, and features striking educational displays and interactive exhibits, all exploring the brain behaviour, structure and abilities.
The stalls and activities will be open from 3.45 to 5.30pm (from 3pm for Cheney students).
There will be a closing talk from 5.30 - 6pm by Professor Sophie Scott, neuroscientist and comedian: "The Brain: Ten Things You Should Know".
The event is free and open to all ages, but please do donate online here
