2nd Annual Rocky Mountain Regional Mind & Brain Education Mini Conference

Program Details


Join us at the Museum of Nature and Science for a day of " Mind & Brain Education" presented and attended by local K-12 educators with a common interest in applying psychology and neuroscience to their practice as they learn about things like:  

  • How do we learn? 
  • How do we regulate emotion? 
  • Culturally Responsive Teaching & The Brain 
  • What motivates and demotivates learners?
