Brain Games

Watch a video from Brain Games 2016.

As part of Brain Awareness Week, which aims to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research, the University holds its very own Brain Games.

Aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils (aged 8-11), the Brain Games formed a set of fun and interactive competitive activities, offering primary school children the chance to collect points and win prizes. It is designed to highlight the range of brain-related research undertaken at the University.

Brain Games 2017

The 2017 event took place on Sunday 19 March at the National Museum Cardiff.

Some of the activities included a taste twister, where children sampled some of our fruity treats and were asked if they tasted the way they expected it to.

There was also do-it-yourself brain surgery, which saw participants performing their own surgery, and Jedi brain, where they used their brain waves to make the ball float higher than their friends'.
