Brain Blast 1 – Week 1

This Saturday was a beautiful sunny day to meet all of our new neuroscientists!  Students were introduced to their new lab, “The Zeiger Lab” and learned about the scientific method.  We began to learn about the different parts of the nervous system along with specific parts of the brain including the cortex, cerebellum, brainstem, and limbic system.  Students began to create their brain models they will be using in the next few weeks.  Make sure to ask your students about their upcoming scientific meeting.  See you next Saturday when students will design protective gear to save those important brain cells and get to explore a real brain!
