Brain Architecture Game

First 5 Lake County staff can provide the interactive Brain Architecture Game experience at your staff inservice, parent gathering, or training free of charge. The Brain Architecture Game is a tabletop game experience that builds understanding of the powerful role of early experiences on brain development - what promotes it, what derails it, and with what consequences to society. The game is a 75-90 minute experience optimized for groups of 4-6 people per table. It can be played in small workshops, conference and large events, with as few as 8 or as many as 300 participants.
