Brain Detectives is a half day workshop taking place in the Easter holidays for children aged 6-14 years who are interested in learning about the brain and taking part in some real research.

Activities at Brain Detectives include computer games and fun puzzles designed to help us learn about how children see and think about the world around them. For example, in one fun game, children will put on 3D glasses and help characters win a magic contest by recognising when items on the screen change colour. This game will help us understand how children combine information from their two eyes when seeing things.

Children will also learn some fun facts about the brain and collect clues throughout the session to help them win some treasure.
