Summary of the activities taking place over both days themed “A brain made to learn”:
- ROUND TABLE – Wednesday 15 November at 7pm
- Veyrier village hall
Exchange ideas! This round table, on the topic of “Neuroscience and affective science as a learning tool”, will be an opportunity to share points of view and start a dialogue between researchers, education experts and the public. Professor David Sander, Director of the Interfaculty Centre for Affective Sciences (CISA) at the University of Geneva, is working with us on the event, and will present the latest developments in the field in an open, accessible format, kicking off the discussion. He will be accompanied by doctoral student Solange Delevaud, whose research is devoted to “understanding the impact of learning environments on the brain development of children aged between 5 and 13, and how emotions are linked to academic and social outcomes.”
- EXPERIMENT DAY AT ECOLE EDEN – Saturday 18 November from 10 am to 6 pm
- Ecole EDEN – Route de Veyrier 270 (Children aged 4 and above – Free entry)
For one day only, the school will become a laboratory full of ideas and experiments open to everyone! Workshops will take place in different areas. Visitors will be immersed in the hidden and captivating world of emotions thanks to a whole host of activities planned by the university and Ecole Eden. A stand providing entertainment here, a workshop inviting the public to take part in an experiment there, and around the corner, visitors will find games that have been specially designed so that the whole family can engage with their own emotions. And that’s not all, curious visitors will discover a surprising photo booth which will capture the moments when fear passes over children’s faces. Speaking of which, do we all react to fear in the same way? Find out on 18 November at Ecole Eden.
