The “Brain Theater” is housed in the lobby of the Poe Center in a shell whose exterior is representative of a twelve-foot-tall human head. The interior theater features a rounded cave- like 20 by 20 foot space; with decorative lighting to simulate veins and nerves.
Visitors view a brain health education program through two large monitors at the front of the theater, which are located where the eyes would be. Nerf balls will be shot at the audience during the program to demonstrate the reactions of the nervous system to stimuli.
The approximately 10-minute Cranium Connection program is most appropriate for ages 6-12.
