Brain, Body, and Wellness Fair

3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Harold Alfond Forum
Biddeford Campus

The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences at the University of New England created the annual Brain Fair to engage the local community in brain exploration. After a 5 year absence, the Brain, Body & Wellness Fair is back! The fair promotes interest in STEM disciplines — neuroscience in particular — within the greater community. Students, professional staff, and faculty develop neuroscience-related hands-on activities and experiments for the general public, resulting in a science museum-like experience for the local community. The fair is held in celebration of Brain Awareness Week. All activities are free and open to the public.

Fair events include ice skating, free helmet fittings and giveaways, concussion information hands-on microscopy exhibits, sheep brain and eyeball dissections, brain health and wellness information, optical illusions brain games, virtual reality demos, muscle stimulation, neuroscience art, learning and memory challenges, brain crafts, prizes, and more.
