Neuroscience, Physics, and Your Brain – You Decide Workshop 2.0

Navigate the spectrum of the mind! How do we learn about the brain? What have we learned? Discover current brain mapping basics. Explore: How have savants and injuries helped us learn about the brain? Think about the future: What kind of images are ok to be public knowledge about your brain? Does that answer differ if the images are used for a trial, your permanent record, or an employer?

Study physics and the brain by learning what the (f)MRI sees.

What kinds of careers relate to this topic? Check out resources to extend the experience.

‘You Decide’ workshops provide the opportunity for students to put into practice what they’ve learned during SciTech Days workshops. Reflecting on the workshop topic, students are asked to think about a particular issue, set priorities, make a choice, and choose an action. They’re given opportunities to process the content both as individuals and as teams. By integrating the experience with content material, the impact and relevance of this experience is magnified.

Science and technology topics include: anatomy, physics, new technologies, neuroscience, careers, and project-based learning

Program Capacity: 15
