Public Engagement

CUBRIC is passionate about public engagement – partnering our knowledge, research and resources with the wider community to enrich scholarship and research, enhance curriculum teaching and learning and engage our society in science.

We work closely with affiliated departments to deconstruct scientific myths and highlight the range of brain related research undertaken at Cardiff University.


School Tours

Here at CUBRIC we host school visits for pupils of all ages. Students will be given a tour of the cutting edge technology used to record human brain activity. To request a school tour please contact:


The Brain School Assembly Project

Building off the huge enthusiasm for public engagement activities that the Brain Games event generated, Cardiff Neuroscience staff and postgraduates have paired with Cardiff Neuroscience undergraduates to roll out a series of primary school assemblies across the whole of Cardiff.


The Laboratory of Neuroillusions

This August festival-goers were treated to some baffling and bizarre perceptual illusions by Cardiff Unversity PHD students, postgraduates and lecturers at this year’s Green Man festival.


Cardiff Science Festival

Cardiff’s showcase for science and technology saw plenty of exciting events taking place in venues across Cardiff this summer. CUBRIC were lucky enough to exhibit some of its famous Brain Games in the beautiful Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay.


Brain Games

As part of Brain Awareness Week, which aims to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research, CUBRIC held its very own Brain Games at The National Museum of Wales.


Brain Art Competition

CUBRIC ran a Brain Art Competition across four local primary schools for children aged 7-11. Entries were judged by a local panel comprised of scientists and artists. All entries were compiled into a mosaic which was displayed at The National Museum of Wales.
