A Step-by-Step Program for Cultivating a Healthy Brain

“My Brain & Me”, is an enthralling journey designed for elementary and middle schoolers interested in neuroscience, or the science of nervous systems (like the brain, spinal cord, and sensory systems). This immersive program awakens young minds to the magic within their own heads, transforming complex science into a captivating adventure of discovery, connection, and self-empowerment.

Step 1: Intro to the Wonders of the Brain
We'll plunge together into the wondrous world of neuroscience. This isn't just about the dry facts, this is about YOU and your brain! You'll be able to create your very own Brain Hat, as you uncover riveting facts about the organ that makes you, well, YOU!.
Step 2: Sensory Saga: Exploring Visual and Olfactory Experiences
Next, you'll uncover the synergy between your brain, eyes, and olfactory pathway. You'll "Draw Your Visual Pathway", find your own blind spot, and learn how your brain interprets smell with a Scent Test.
Step 3: A Symphony of Tastes and Touches
We'll savor the flavor of knowledge, as we explore the gustatory pathway and the enigma of taste. You'll perform a Taste Test and then venture into the land of touch, the somatosensory pathway with an interactive Touch Test!
Step 4: Becoming Guardians of the Brain and Living the Adventure!
In the final saga, we'll review the sensory pathways and introduce a crucial topic - Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). You'll learn how to protect your most valuable asset - your brain - and get a glimpse into the day of a neuroscientist. We'll end by visiting a local pre-clinical lab or pediatric hospital to apply your newfound knowledge.
