Join Us February 8, 2020 For Brain Fair Activities at the Miami-Dade STEAM Expo! @ Miami-Dade College North Campus
Feb 8 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Miami Brain Fair is a free educational event to teach students and adults about neuroscience and how the brain works. Students can touch and dissect a real brain, build a neuron from clay, discover how visual illusions really work, see neurons under a microscope, and learn about how the spinal cord connects to the brain and body. High school students can compete in the Brain Bee, which tests students’ knowledge of neuroscience.

 

  • Where: Miami-Dade College North Campus, 11380 NW 27 Avenue Miami, 33167
  • When: Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 10:00am – 2:00pm.  The Brain Bee will be from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.
  • Questions? Contact: miamibrainbee@gmail.com
