Webinars for home-schooling

We are so enjoying doing our webinars for children about the brain and neuroscience. They are free and available to anyone, regardless of whether you are a member of the BNA.

Webinars last approximately an hour and feature:

  • interactive challenges and questions
  • activities, e.g. making a 'brain hat', the materials for which can be found around the house.
  • questions answered live by BNA neuroscientists 

Please email Lydia at lydia@bna.org.uk with any questions, concerns or feedback - we'd love to hear from you! Scroll down or click here to find photos sent by those that have participated in previous webinars.

You can also find recordings of previous webinars and further activities to help children consolidate what they've learned during a webinar here


Please note that attendees participating in any webinars hosted by the BNA are expected to be polite and respectful to both the panellists and other attendees.  Comments in the chat function, and questions posted in the Q&A, should be relevant to the presentation and topic of discussion. If any of the panellists consider that comments posted in the chat or Q&A function are inappropriate, likely to distract other participants and/or could be deemed offensive, the attendee posting such comments will be removed from the webinar and unable to rejoin.
