With topics spanning ‘core neuroscience’, ‘the scientific process’, ‘careers in STEM’ and ‘brain health’, these sessions will grow the student’s ‘science capital’ and give them a fascinating introduction to the field.
Neuroscience Ireland and the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) are committed to promoting brain awareness. We recognise that introducing children to the brain and its functions at an early age is crucial to forming their understanding and attitude towards brain health. Dr Alex Collcutt is the Education and Engagement Officer at the British Neuroscience Association (BNA), the largest UK organisation representing and promoting neuroscience and neuroscientists. In this session, Alex will take you through the idea behind the programme and run through some engaging neuroscience games and activities for you to carry out in your own classrooms.
