Why does food not taste good when we have a cold? How do brain cells communicate? What does the brain look like up close? In this interactive children’s event, held in the Adelaide Medical School at the University of Adelaide, we’ll explore the answers to these questions and many more.

Children (aged 4-10) will explore how the brain and nervous system work in a fun and hands-on way by participating in a series of interactive neuroscience exhibits. At each station, children can collect a stamp in their “Passport to the Brain” and work towards earning an official “Brain in Training” certificate. At the end of the day, kids can show off their knowledge by competing in a quiz to earn prizes and bragging rights. And this year, join us prior to the event (starting at 11:30 am) to enjoy free face painting and ballon artists who will be showing off their neuron making skills!

A sausage sizzle and sweets will be available for purchse to benefit the NeuroSurgical Research Foundation. Bookings are essential via Eventbrite. Are you joining us? Tell us how excited you are and talk about the event using #knn.

This project received grant support from the Australian Government.
