BrainWorx: A Summer Experience at Laurier
Welcome to BrainWorx!
Offered through the Department of Psychology at Laurier, BrainWorx invites families to participate in experimental and training studies each summer. Children will participate in studies, learn how their minds develop and engage in a wide variety of crafts, games, sports and other science-related activities -- it's summer camp with a brainy twist!
What are the studies?
All studies have received full ethical approval. A brief sample of studies are below:
After each study, your child will learn what the purpose of each study was discuss how their "brain works" with the researchers. Each day, a "What I Learned About my Brain" book will come home for parents/guardians to review (in addition to other crafts, etc.).
Who are the BrainWorx staff?
The staff from Laurier's Child Memory Lab will be running BrainWorx. These people are highly trained, qualified individuals who have all had experience working with children.
