The Third Annual Rocky Mountain Regional Mind and Brain Education Conference

The Third Annual Rocky Mountain Regional Mind and Brain Education Conference

Program Details


Join us at the Denver Museum of Nature &Science for a day of "Mind & Brain Education" presented and attended by local K–12 educators and university researchers 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 and the brain 
  • What motivates and demotivates learners? 
  • The science of belonging and agency 

We are bringing together local facilitators who will present some evidence-based strategies that you can walk away and use tomorrow. Choose between several 90-minute concurrent mini-sessions held in 3 rounds. 

Saturday, September 30
8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

For practicing K–12 grade educators
