Neuroscientist’s Apprentice 2

Sunday, June 2, 2019
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Is exercise the secret to good grades? It might just be. Work side by side with New York University neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki to test the hypothesis that physical activity can enhance learning abilities, memory, and mood in healthy young adults. You’ll participate in a short aerobic exercise, and then put on an EEG headset to take computer tests that determine how well you remember sequences and perform repetitive tasks.

Please note: Physical activity is involved in this program.

A student-only program for kids currently enrolled in grades 5-8. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this event.

Supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
