Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS) Discovery Day

Sunday, March 29, 2020 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

You can touch a real brain, make a brain “hat,” look through a microscope and participate in lots of other fun, family-friendly activities on Sunday, March 29, during Discovery Day at the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences. Duke undergrads, graduate students, postdoctoral associates and faculty will be on hand to help with exhibits and activities. As one of last year’s young attendees said, “Brains are COOL!”

Discovery Day will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. in The “Cube,” located next to the Levine Science Research Center on Duke University's West Campus, 308 Research Drive, Durham, NC, 27708. It will again feature a sensory-friendly visiting time from noon to 1 p.m., for children and adults who need a quieter, less crowded environment to enjoy the event.
