Loras College to Host 3rd Annual Brain Games March 14

BrainGamesLoras College’s Psi Chi and NeuroClub will host the third annual Brain Games and invite the community to join in on March 14 from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Marie Graber Ballroom in the Alumni Campus Center.

Brain Games will feature interactive stations with puzzles, memory demos, an inverted goggle obstacle course, neuron modeling station, a sheep brain, and several other activities and demonstrations.

“Our goal this year is to make learning about the brain even more fun for the local 4th and 5th graders that come onto campus. It’s a great event for them, and it’s a great way for our students at Loras to be a part of Brain Awareness Week,” said Michael Jarcho, PhD, Assistant Professor of Neuroscience. “For the past two years, this event has been a real treat for everyone involved. From the students visiting our campus for the first time to the Loras students running the games, to the faculty advisors for Psi Chi and NeuroClub, everyone gets a kick out of the brain!”

“Brain Games is an opportunity for kids around the area to come and enjoy themselves while learning interactively about the brain,” said Emily Wichelt (’16) (Blue Grass, Iowa), NeuroClub President. “The members of NeuroClub and Psi Chi love seeing how much fun the kids have, and we look forward to this event every year!”
