Have you ever wondered about what makes different animals special? How do animals that are active at night or live in the oceans ‘see’ without light? What makes dolphins so special? If you’ve wondered about these sorts of questions, join us on a discovery of the unique senses that have evolved in the animal kingdom! Combining STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities such as ‘drawing brains’ with excerpts from her award-winning (Literary Titan Gold award) children’s book, Baby Senses: A Sensory Neuroscience Primer for All Ages, this event will take you all on a journey of the senses. With activities and narrations to engage children and curious adults, this event is perfect for a family audience, and we hope to see you there! Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
