We made a lounge on university campus so the the students and teachers could came to us to participate on the workshops. For a full-day activity, we brought games that train the brain and dare people to try it, as so we answer question about neurosciencie in our day-by-day. We aimed to make people being curious and interessed about how our brain works and the new discoveries in neuroscience. It was very nice talking about neuroscience to students of vary areas and courses.
