Let the Brains from Northwestern University Supercharge You and Your Family's Brains - for Free!

The brain scientists from Northwestern University Brain Awareness Outreach (NUBAO) will be holding their 5th Annual Brain Awareness Fair at Lake View High School on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 - another mind-blowing, experiment-packed opportunity for you and your kids to learn all about how the brain works! This free event fills up every year, so register now - you'll control a Lego robot with brain-derived signals, experience and learn about the effect of bizarre optical illusions on your mind, take a look at your own brain waves, and much more.

Activities are designed for kids of all ages, and your family will be learning one-on-one with enthusiastic Northwestern neuroscience graduate students, staff and faculty. Kids and teens must be accompanied by a parent or chaperone (so you'll be learning right along!).

Register today because the event always fills up fast, so if you register, please be sure you can make it (there are other brains that want to get off the wait list!). Questions? Contact NUBAO at nubrainawareness@gmail.com.
