Many workshops intersperse the Science Festival agenda with activities for children. Wednesday, October 4, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Luis Aragon Media Library, children ages 8 to 12 will discover how the brain works through fun experiments. Les Petits Débrouillards, which chairs these workshops, will meet again on Saturday, October 14, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the François Mitterrand Media Library to challenge the brain with illusion challenges.
There will also be something for adults with the “Mind for All Ages” workshop, Wednesday, October 18, at 2:30 p.m., at the François Mitterrand Media Library. In the face of aging, let us learn how to preserve our brain and understand the concept of “brain reserve”.
Escape game is offered from 10 years old. Locked in the laboratory of a famous scientist, you and your team have one hour to investigate the disappearance of one of the most sought-after minds on the planet. The sessions will be held on Wednesday, October 11, at 10am, 1:30pm, 3pm, and 4:30pm at the Hostellerie Saint-Julien Chapelle, and Saturday, October 21, at 10am, 1:30pm, 3pm, and 4:30pm at the François Mitterrand Media Library.

Conference to understand
The François Mitterrand Media Library will open its doors on Saturday, October 21, at 4 pm, to Jean-Luc Morel, researcher at the Center National de la Recherche Scientifique and the Aquitaine Institute of Cognitive and Integrative Neuroscience. The conference he will hold will be titled “Understanding Memory Mechanisms for Learning and Remembering.” In order to know how to learn, you need to know how memory is formed, consolidated, or changed. Neuroscience is trying to shed light on these topics through experiments that can suggest ways to improve this learning.
