The Franklin Institute

This is more than a museum; it is a venerable Philadelphia institution, widely recognized for its hands-on, creative approach to education.  Besides its renown in the Phildalphia area, the Franklin Institute is one of the oldest and premier centers for science education and is consistently introducing new ideas to students and the public at large.  It is most famous for its blockbuster interactive exhibitions, the newest of which is…

Your Brain.

This exhibit addresses the ever-changing brain and attempts to explain how and why your brain is constantly adapting.  It considers the questions: What is the brain?  How does it work? What does it do?  Some aspects of the exhibit include:

    • Scan a brain
    • Fire a model neuron
    • Follow your visual pathway
    • Explore how your brain interprets conflicting information
    • Say that again! A look at how the brain learns
    • Challenge your brain’s expectations
