Event Details

In this interactive workshop, students will discover how brains work by examining sheep brains, building neurons out of pipe cleaners and harnessing the power of music to make a cockroach leg dance. Using tools like those used by real neuroscientists, students will explore the anatomy of our brains and experience first-hand how our brains communicate with our senses.

The San Diego Public Library and UC San Diego Extension are proud to bring all Library NExT programming to you for free, thanks to funding provided by the federal government.  In order to keep these programs free, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant program requires us to collect household income information as part of the registration.  All the information collected is confidential and is only used for tracking to provide funds for this program.

All participants are welcome. If you need special accessibility accommodations, please call (619) 236-5807 or email mbrandesmiesner@sandiego.gov  in advance of your participation.
