The annual Brain Fair promotes interest in STEM disciplines (neuroscience in particular) within the greater community. The Fair has a number of neuroscience-related hands-on activities and experiments for the general public, resulting in a science museum-like experience for the local community. The event is put on by The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences at the University of New England. Activities are created by students, staff, and faculty. All activities are free and open to the public. Event is ideal for ages 4 and up.
