The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is proud to be a part of the Bloomington community. We offer a variety of educational events each year to engage children, their parents, and other community members. These activities also provide experiential learning opportunities for PBS students who volunteer to assist.
Some events and activities include:
- Blocks Rock!
This six-week educational program is presented to children at the Boys & Girls Club. In the Blocks Rock! game, two players compete to build a color-and shape-specific structure in the shortest amount of time. The game is thought to enhance visual-spatial learning.
- Monroe County Fall Festival Education Day
We host a booth at the Monroe County Fall Festival with science-related activities for children (and their parents).
- Your Amazing Brain Exhibition
PBS faculty created a variety of hands-on learning exhibits that culminated in the “Your Amazing Brain Exhibition” at the WonderLab Museum of Science, Health, and Technology.
- Celebrate Science Indiana
Professor Ehren Newman and student research assistants increased “brain awareness” at the Celebrate Science Indiana event at the Indiana State Fair.
