Brain Day was a success!

Turnout for Brain Day was excellent on the beautiful Saturday, with well over 100 visitors just for the afternoon.

During Brain Day, Dr. Karen Gunther demonstrated how the brain could be tricked. If a person concentrates on the fake hand long enough they will begin to believe it is their own. This young visitor to Brain Day certainly seems to be concentrating hard.

Assistant Professor of Psychology Neil Schmitzer-Torbert, talks about sheep brains with a visitor to the Carnegie Museum during Brain Day. Dr. Schmitzer-Torbert teaches neuroscience courses at Wabash College.

Summer at the Carnegie Museum II

Six more people finished the summer program! The last part of the program is to write what you liked or didn't like about the program. So far there have not been any dislikes.

Here are some of the children's answers:

Noah wrote, "It was fun and it was educational and I will do it again (next year)."

Angel liked the Sugar Creek Exhibit "best of all."

Amelia wrote, "I think the Carnegie is the best museum ever! You guys put on awesome exhibits like the Prom and Peanuts. I love the Sugar Creek Exhibit. I think you take awesome topics and put together your thoughts and boom! it's done."

Steve liked the Snoopy Exhibit best but also liked learning about new things.

And 12-year-old Thomas learned "some random facts about words, Peanuts, C-ville and all kinds of history stuff that was really weird."

With praise like this you will not want to miss out!
There is still time to join in the fun but Snoopy leaves us the end of July and Summer at the Carnegie Museum ends Aug 6th.
