Brain Architecture Game: Virtual Lunch and Learn
May 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
About this Event
Join Remake Learning and Dr. Judy Cameron in learning how to play the Brain Architecture Game. This game helps people appreciate the impact of early childhood experiences on outcomes across the lifespan.
About the Game:
The Brain Architecture Game is a tabletop game experience that builds understanding of the powerful role of experiences on early brain development – what promotes it, what derails it, with what consequences for society.
In the Remote Team Editions of the game, participants can play via zoom and screen-sharing in groups (and virtual breakout rooms) of 3-6 people. One person will still need pipe cleaners, straws, and weights, and a functioning webcam which Remake Learning will mail in advance of the workshop.
About Dr. Judy Cameron:
Judy L. Cameron, Ph.D., is a Professor of Psychiatry and the Director of Pitt Science Outreach at the University of Pittsburgh. For 10 years she was a member of the McArthur Foundation Research Network on Early Experience and Brain Development and she is currently a member of the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child and the Scientific Council for the Child Mind Institute. She has a well-established research program studying how life experiences shape brain development and lifelong brain plasticity, focusing on the impact of social stresses, exercise and nutrition.
Erin from Remake Learning will email participants a zoom link in advance of the workshop.
