MIT Science on Saturday Information

This is a reminder that our next free MIT campus Science on Saturday event will be "Your Developing Brain" at 10:00 a.m. on February 4th. This show will be presented by the MIT Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department. You can donate your live brain to science--volunteers from the audience will be able to assist with the on-stage demonstrations to illustrate how your brain works. After the stage show, there will be many different hands-on activity tables where kids can do their own experiments with various aspects of neuroscience.

There is also half-price, same-day admission to the MIT Museum for Science on Saturday attendees.

All of our Science on Saturday events on the MIT campus are free and open to all elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as their parents and teachers. They are sponsored by the MIT Museum and the Akamai Foundation. Parking and seating are limited, so we recommend that you arrive early. Attendees can park in either the West Garage (very close to the event) or Albany Garage (a ~10-15-minute walk from the event) provided they can pay the $8 flat fee with a credit card at either parking garage. Alternatively, attendees can take MBTA buses to the MIT Massachusetts Avenue stop (very close to the event) or the subway to either the Central or Kendall Square T stops (a ~20-minute walk from the event). For maps of the event and parking garage locations, please see the attached advertising flyer or our web page:
