Today the children have continued to learn about the brain in a neuroscience session! The children learnt all about how neural pathways are made in the brain when we learn something new. When something is new to us we try and neural pathways are relatively weak. However, through practice, perseverance and hard work our neural pathways become stronger. As a visual example of this the children built neural pathways from one neuron to another using paper chains. By the end of the session the children all understood how we strengthen neural pathways to make us better at things. As you can see the children had a great time.
