Neuroscience Students at Mini-Maker Faire

Maker Faire is an event created by Make magazine to "celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself mindset." Sierra Community College in Rocklin, CA brought to us a Mini-Maker Faire, in which CHS Neuroscience students participated in a "NeuroFun" booth to children and adults of all ages. The "NeuroFun" booth emphasized one of the most fascinating organs in the body - the Brain! Children really enjoyed the Spin-the-Wheel activity, in which they answered brain questions for prizes. The booth also had face painting and art projects for younger children, as well as information about mental health awareness and neurological disorders for adults.
