Kids navigate neuroscience

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.
