The Amazing Brain Carnival is an immersive event that invites the public to learn about the inner workings of the brain.

ABC is held at the Saint Louis Science Center’s SciFest. Volunteers from Washington University give hands-on demonstrations that illuminate the basic functions of our nervous system–from sensation to cognition.

Interested in volunteering?

SciFest: Play and Creativity will be held Saturday, August 13, 2022.

Graduate students, postdocs and faculty in the neurosciences are invited to volunteer for ABC. You can present an established demo or develop your own. Members of any Department or School at Washington University are welcome!

Volunteers must attend a science communication workshop with the Science Center team the morning of July 9, 2022 on the WashU Med campus. An optional second workshop will be offered at the Science Center the morning of July 30 to develop new demos and practice engaging with the public. Volunteers receive lunch and parking.

If you’re unavailable for SciFest: Play and Creativity, there are more opportunities to volunteer! SciFest: Health and Safety Expo is November 19, 2022. We’d love to see you there!
