Girls Day

November 3, 2018, 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Every November and March, the MIT Museum celebrates women in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Visitors can expect to explore, create, and investigate with scientists from many local universities. This November we will be exploring the complex and curious world of neuroscience. Hands-on activities, informal talks, and demonstrations are included with admission.

Activities include:
Prism goggles, neural mapping, optical illusions and mind tricks, and optogenetics in worms. Also a "live painting" of a 6' canvas by Daniela Gamba, illustrator and Gamemaster at Eyewire.

Recommended for ages 10+ but all are welcome.
