Brain Trust, Fall 2014
Brain Trust is a wonderful campus event that brings youngsters from the area schools to campus for an entertaining learning experience: this year students from Nebraska City and Bellevue attended, 210 energetic youngsters.
My colleague in the School of Education, Dr. Gina Bitner, reminded me of the event, and I spent a couple hours with the various groups, taking pictures and enjoying the fun.
Throughout Brain Trust, PSC students offer various programs to engage with the students, from understanding shapes, to creating slime, one of my favorite activities.
Other activities include learning about minerals, animals, money gravity, and things that glow in the dark.
The youngsters' enthusiasm filled the halls of T. J. Majors. The laughter and the enthusiasm put smiles on faces, both youngsters and PSC students.
