11 November 2013

Nineteen year 5/6 pupils learned about the brain and had fun with various games and activities.

The outreach team of Dave Turk, Emily Darley and Carlos Munoz-Neira visited Flax Bourton primary school, North Somerset to run the Brain Box Challenge. Nineteen year 5/6 pupils learned about the brain and had fun with various games and activities.  Pictured here are PhD student Emily Darley helping a young Flax Bourton experimenter and MSc student Carlos Munoz-Neira measuring a pupil for the brain speed test.

Class Teacher Joanne Smith said "..it was a great experience for the children to meet "real life scientists" (especially a female role model), they were also fascinated by the various activities, relished the fun learning environment that was established and learned a huge amount about the brain."
