19EXT 03 014 - Neuroscience Workshop for Teachers

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.

The workshop will be held during International Brain Awareness week, on Thursday 14th March (3.30pm-6.00pm) in the O’Brien Science Centre at UCD. Activities will focus on primary school and early-year secondary school education. Participation is FREE, but places are limited. For informal enquiries please contact derek.costello@ucd.ie or visit bna.org.uk. For booking and related enquiries, please contact Blackrock Education Centre.
