A group of students at African Road Elementary School had a fun time learning about the human brain recently.
Graduate and undergraduate students from Binghamton University hosted a science club. There were interactive stations set up for the kids. For instance, kids tasted things with their noses plugged and unplugged. They also felt water and learned how neuro-transmitters in the brain work. The goal of the event was to get Elementary School-aged kids interested in science.
Christopher Bishop says, "One of the things that we're trying to do at Binghamton University and in the Department of Psychology is to get our undergraduate and graduate students involved in outreach and try to educate the public on the importance of the brain and neuro-science and public health."
The event was part of Brain Awareness Week.
