Brain Fairs Coming Up

Curious about how the brain works? Are your kids interested in science?  Touch a real human brain, measure your brain waves, or try on some distortion goggles at Brain Waves Rhode Island‘s two upcoming Brain Fairs: Saturday, March 9, at the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket; and Saturday, March 16, at Brown’s Engineering Research Center in Providence. Both events are free and open to the public.

Each fair features 50+ stations with games and fun activities for people to learn about basic brain science and brain health, meet scientists and clinicians, learn about local colleges and programs, and pick up information about available community resources.

Pawtucket Brain Fair, 10am to 2pm, Saturday, March 9 — Hope Artiste Village, 1005 Main Street, Pawtucket.

Brown Brain Fair, 10am to 2pm, Saturday, March 16 — Brown Engineering Research Center, 345 Brook Street.

Both Brain Fairs will also include short talks on brain health and research. In Pawtucket, two “Brain Power Hours” aim to educate and inspire audiences about brain health and science while showcasing local research diversity. Featuring experts in brain health, patients sharing their stories, and cutting-edge researchers, these two discussions will each focus on a specific brain injury or disorder. Audiences will have a chance to engage and ask questions. The Brown Brain Fair will present graduate students giving informal talks about their research for the general audience.

This is the ninth year that Brain Waves RI (formerly Brain Week RI) has produced the brain fairs. More at BWRI Facebook page.
