Neuroscience fun

From sensory illusions and inflatable Brain Domes to ghost hands and ‘DIY Brain Surgery’ workshops, this free interactive day showcases the power and mystery of our most vital organ – the human brain!

With more than 3,700 turning out for last year’s event, Brain Games is filled with fun and educational brain-related activities, featuring everything from Super Stem Cells to messy crafts and new additions such as a ‘Giant Genes’ building game.

Activities are pitched at children aged 7-11, but everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy taking on our challenges and your friends – you may even win neuro-themed prizes whilst learning about the wonders of your brain!

“A big thank you to everyone who has signed up so far,” said NMHRI Engagement Lead Professor Frank Sengpiel, Head of Neuroscience Division in the School of Biosciences.

“Whether you are running a game, delivering a talk or workshop, or helping to set-up the activities – everyone can get involved with Brain Games.

“This fantastic event would not be possible without the incredible efforts and support of our intrepid army of volunteers.”
