CNBP Director Prof. Mark Hutchinson and Centre researcher Vicky Staikopoulos were talking Pirate Photons at the ‘Kids Navigate Neuroscience’ outreach event, coordinated and hosted by the¬†University of Adelaide Medical School, August 15, 2015.

The event, supported by the Centre of Nanoscale BioPhotonics, contributed to National Science Week activity, and saw 250 children aged 6-12 in attendance. Over an action packed four hours the children explored how the brain and nervous system work in a fun and hands-on way by participating in a series of interactive neuroscience exhibits created by University faculty members and health sciences/medical students.

Feedback from the event was universally positive, with children gaining the opportunity to engage with science content in an entertaining and and approachable way.
