Being Brainy

Hi, my name is DAN – welcome to Being Brainy!
Our brain is the most important organ in the body. It controls everything!
What we do, who we are, how we feel, and how we perceive the world around us.
Being Brainy has been developed by neuroscientists at the Universities of Auckland and Otago. It is a free teaching resource that allows primary and intermediate school teachers to take students on an exciting 8-week programme full of hands-on activities, experiments and inquiry about the human brain. Come and take a look!
