Brain Day

Calling All “Brainiacs” to Uncover the Brain’s Mysteries!

Patricia & Phillip Frost Museum of Science & Baptist Health South Florida present BRAIN DAY March 19–21 

It’s time to get your thinking cap on! Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is inviting South Floridians to become true “brainiacs” during its Brain Day 2015 celebrations March 19–21. Presented by Baptist Health South Florida, the educational three-day event, which takes place during Brain Awareness Week, focuses on neuroscience and offers stimulating programming for science insiders, young professionals and families.

Kicking off Thursday, March 19, is the Museum’s popular Science Up Close event series, which consists of themed evenings of casual science conversations. The Brain Day installment of the series will focus on advancements in neuroscience imaging and understanding of the brain. Small group discussions led by neuroscience professors, researchers, and graduate students will follow the presentation. Guests will enjoy music by the Frost School of Music along with complimentary beverages by Wynwood Brewing Company.

On Friday, March 20, the Frost Science Young Patrons, a group of young professionals who serve as lead ambassadors for the Museum, will host a lively evening. The event will feature interactive and thought-provoking hands-on activities that are sure to stimulate the brain. Guests will enjoy light refreshments in an energetic and dynamic atmosphere.

On Saturday, March 21, the festivities will culminate in the main Brain Day event, where families are encouraged to visit the Museum to uncover the workings and complexities of the brain through a variety of fun and educational activities. Young scientists will discover how the brain works through interactions with neuroscientists, the dissection of a sheep brain, and learning about the latest advancements in medical science and preventive measures against strokes and concussions.
