BRAIN FAIR AND BRAIN BEE

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.
