Make paper brain hats to celebrate the wonderous grey matter between our ears with brain scientists and art educator Bethan Durie.

Make your own paper brain hats and celebrate the wonderous grey matter between our ears that creates thought, memory, emotion, touch, vision and much more besides. Art educator and Royal College of Art alumni Bethan Durie will join forces with brain scientists from Imperial’s UK Dementia Research Institute to deliver this workshop. As you make your brain hat you can chat to the scientists about amazing feats the most complex thing discovered in the universe is capable of, and why studying how the brain works can help medical sciences support people when things go wrong.
