Video Adventures to Help You Explore Your Brain

Just like any muscle, you can build your brainpower. Join the Neuroscience Outreach Group of the University of Colorado – Anschutz Medical Campus to explore the biology behind how our brains process the world around us. Learn how your brain is changing all the time and is a creativity machine! We’ll also dive in and demo how fear and stress affect how we understand the world, the impact of substances on our brain cells, how our brains develop, and how you can hack your brain!

Educators! We want to be a resource for you too.

TEDxMileHigh + High Costs Adventures believe in the power of helping youth translate ideas into action and positive life choices. The Meet Your Mind video lessons and this teaching guide have been crafted to help your students understand how the brain works and provide you with some fun demos exploring how the brain works, discussion questions, and additional resources. Created for ages 12-16.

ABOUT THE HIGH COSTS CAMPAIGN

High Costs gives youth the straight facts about marijuana, using unique and engaging tactics to educate on a substance that, while on its way to normalization in Colorado, is still illegal for recreational use by anyone under the age of 21. Learn more at TheHighCosts.com.

In partnership with the City and County of Denver and the High Costs campaign, TEDxMileHigh is curating a series of Adventures to help middle and high school students connect with positive activities while understanding how the high costs of underage marijuana use can affect their goals, dreams, and futures.
