There are some fun and interesting experiments and tests to try out. The kids especially enjoyed the one where there was a list of colors side by side. The first one had the colors printed in the same color as the name (orange in orange, blue in blue, etc) and the second had the colors mixed up. The challenge? To say the second list but say the color by name, not by the color it was printed in! It was tough to do - your brain wants to use the color it is printed in!
We learned about the brain and love, emotions, forming memories, and lots more. Tons of hands on activities in this exhibit! Samantha said she liked learning about the advances in medical technology. Brain: The Inside Story will be on display at Fernbank through August 23, 2015.
We also got to check out some old favorites at Fernbank! Sensing Nature is a FUN room full of all kinds of optical illusions, hands on experiments for sound and sight, giant bubbles, a weather forecasting set and much more. It's always a fun time when we visit this awesome room!
