Event description

Explore the science of psychology and how your mind works in this hands-on workshop with the Ri's science presenter Dan Plane.

Our brain is an intriguing part of our bodies and is able to do amazing things, many of which we are not even aware are happening.

Dive into your mind and explore how your body knows where it is, how your brain understands what we see, and much more in this workshop for curious minds.

Please note

This workshop is strictly for 10-12 year-olds. There will be a short break during the workshop and a drink and a small snack will be provided. Students should bring their own snack if they have any allergies

This workshop is based on our ExperRimental video series, a series of short films that make it fun, easy and cheap to do science at home. Our films give you lots of ideas for kids’ activities that will help you explore the world around you, question and experiment together.
