Noggin Fest 2017!

As you may well have heard, NW Noggin is headed to DC this fall to bring brains to DC area public schools and present on arts integration, research, outreach, and the power of pipecleaners to the Society for Neuroscience as well as to the House Neuroscience and STEAM caucuses in Congress!

We are bringing our biggest crew of outreach volunteers yet, and are raising funds to get all of our hardworking artists, scientists, and students out. Our biggest fundraiser  –  entirely run and organized by enthusiastic and accomplished brain and art-inspired outreach volunteers  –  and the capstone event for a productive year at NW Noggin  –  is Noggin Fest!

Noggin Fest is the biggest collaborative art, music, and science event in the Pacific Northwest.

Real brains, EEG brain recordings, research presentations, art auctions, and musical performances are only part of what’s in store.

Noggin Fest will be held at Portland’s Alberta Rose Theatre on Oct 11th from 6pm-11pm.
