Five children using household objects as instruments

You’re invited to… Lab Learn: Our Brains and Us

This event is fully booked

We’ve partnered with the Wellcome Trust to bring schools sessions aimed at 5-18 years old to The Hub at the Wellcome Collection, celebrating how our brains think, explore and imagine.

We will explore our brains and celebrate their differences through technology, sound and immersive spaces. In this collaborative event students will work with classes from other schools to:

  • Play with immersive environments
  • Discover the magic of illusion and the tricks it plays on the brain
  • Explore sound using coding, scratch and Makey Makey’s to animate fruit and vegetables
