Events

In partnership with educational institutions, our organization establishes local events on a grassroots level that help teach children the fundamentals of the brain along with interesting areas of exploration including sports and even magic/optical illusions.

Types of Events

Although we are open to new ideas and are always supportive of the event ideas of our hosts, we as an organization pursue 3 types of events:

Brain Lessons
We organize events in which we teach interactive 1-1.5 hour lessons to individual classes. Our content encompasses our “Brain Basics” curriculum, demonstrations, animations, and corresponding activities. In an effort to promote collaborative spirit and critical thinking, a lot of our challenging activities are group based, allowing for an enjoyable, memorable learning experience. These lessons can be hosted virtually.

Brain Day
Partnering with areas of education exploration, we work to create an approximately 3 hour session open to the public as a whole, inviting students of all ages and even parents. In this event, we cover our “Brain Basics” curriculum and corresponding material initially. Then, we transition to module based learning in which we teach our 6 basic modules (music, sports, comedy, magic/optical illusions, sleep, and painting/art) through activities, animations, brochures, and demonstrations. This event strives to spread awareness for neuroscience and STEM amongst all the members of society.

Brain Camp
In partnership with communities, our camp hosts events in neuroscience for a week during the summer by way of which students from all backgrounds can come and explore neuroscience in a hands-on approach. We provide engaging opportunities for the students to learn and interact with each other while learning about science to a degree more advanced than taught in their school, but also more fun.

Host an Event

We are very appreciative for your interest in helping support our cause. Hosting an event allows you to join Brain Bunch and partner with us to lead the mission. The best part is that you get to lead the construction of your own ideal event. In fact, after hosting, you will receive a printed certificate honoring your leadership of a Brain Bunch event. You can partner with us to create one of our types of events or you can propose your own initiative and we can help you organize that event. If you would like to host an event, please click here  to communicate your interest in doing so.
