March for Science: Build your own brain cell @ Velo Cult!

Admission: 

Support scienceBy making your own brain cell..!

 

Pipe cleaner neurons are colorful, bright and visible, they demonstrate structural and functional facts about our nervous systems, and they allow for creative expression…

Brain cells also connect, linking to each other across short gaps called synapses, and form powerful networks that effectively route information and let organisms, including us, respond to changes in our world with organized and successful behavior…

 

Science works.  It demands that we test our hypotheses through experiment  –  and then gather the evidence, share information, replicate investigations, and critically interpret data from the real world…

 

 

Investing in scientific research produces results.  This approach has eradicated smallpox, developed deep brain stimulators to treat Parkinson’s, landed people on the moon, built computers and iPhones, lit our homes and brought us stunning photos and information from Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Pluto  –  and Earth.

 

By linking up and following the evidence  –  properly routing real data and observable facts  –  our own networks of linked neurons have illuminated and explained, and inspire awe, wonder and curiosity about life, the universe, and everything…

 

 

We know, from countless school visits and community events, that researched answers to real questions about how we are built and function is something both kids and the public want to know, and understand, and appreciate, and consider, while enjoying that tingling, tantalizing sense of genuine discovery…

 

Please join us at Velo Cult on Wednesday, March 29 (6 – 8pm) to support sustained federal investment in research, education and outreach, learn about the diversity of brain cell form and function   –  and build your own neurons!
