Children and parents began their week by examining brains, both plastic and real, at the Cabell County Public Library

Marshall University’s Herd Science program came to the library on Aug. 7 to teach kids all about brains – what they do, how they work, and how to care for them.
“What we do is go out into the community to promote science education – neuroscience education, specifically – to children and their parents at local libraries,” said Amy Parsons-White, a research technician in the Department of Biology and Herd Science teacher. The program also does school visits once a month during the school year.
