Brainfest - SummerFest 2019 Off the Hook Arts
Kids, families, and curious people of all ages! Join us for BrainFest, a fun-filled day of hands-on activities on how our brains work. We will explore optical illusions, illusions of sound, and demonstrate how our brains can trick us sometimes. Why do these illusions happen? Learn more about attentional blindness, false memories, and the tools that scientists use to study our brains. 

Stations will include hands-on activities such as a visual illusion photo booth, a 3D printed human brain, and optical illusion art projects.

Learn more about this event and get the latest update on our BrainFest! Website.
