Next week is Brain Awareness Week (March 14-20), and to celebrate the brain, more than 20 fun and fascinating public events will be held around New York City, coordinated by the New York Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience, under the name “braiNY.” Most of the events are free; some do require purchasing a ticket.
Many of the events are geared toward adults, but there’s fun for the whole family, too, at events such as the BioBus, a “lab on wheels,” which will be parked in Harlem on Saturday, March 12. Brain fairs with hands-on activities will be held at Columbia University, New York University, and Mount Sinai.
For a full list of events, visit comebebrainy.com. If you’re not in New York, but would like to participate in Brain Awareness Week, visit our International Calendar of Events to look for activities in your area.
