Workshop Registration

Learn How our Brains Learn with AdaptED Consultants

Like all organs of the body our brain is made up cells. These cells are called neurons and the root of all learning comes from changes in the connections between neurons. Scientists call these changes Neuroplasticity.

In this 30 minute session we will see a demonstration of neuroplasticity and do an art project to learn the anatomy of a neuron and model how learning happens in our brains. Understanding this science can inform our everyday experiences and generate motivation and passion about learning.

Four 30-minute sessions will be held in the Innovation Center during the STEAM festival. Registration is required; please sign up here. Parents and students will participate in these workshops together.
