The Power of the Brain (primary and secondary activities)

Get your thinking caps on and learn about the marvellous organ that is the brain! Explore the parts of our brain that allow us to move and breathe every day. Utilising brain-sensing technologies, students will playfully activate their minds and tap into the sub-conscious to control their body’s response to different stimuli with the aim of understanding how much influence they have over their own bodies. We highlight the impact of breathing and mindfulness on the regulation of their physiological and emotional responses to stress. Research shows that an awareness of these practices leads to confidence in applying calming stress management techniques to their everyday lives.
