Check out our new fall classes!

Looking for some science to do as the weather turns cool and gray?

We’ve posted three new classes for November and December to keep your brain engaged as the weather turns sleepy. Dive into the unseen world of microscopy on November 7th, with Smart Phone microscopyor get inside your head by getting inside a brain in our Intro to Neurobiology: Sheep Brain Dissection on November 14th. If you’re looking for an early Christmas Gift, our Elephant Toothpaste class on December 12th will bring out your fun-side as you learn some hands-on chemistry!

So get excited about the changing seasons, because it means more chances to do some science with HiveBio! We can’t wait to see you.

Learn more about these classes and how to register for them here.

Reserve Your Brain for Beginning Neurobiology

Today is the last day to reserve your own brain for the sheep brain dissection at our Beginning Neurobiology class on Saturday May 31st. Registration is still open at this link. This class is suitable for adults and children who have never done a dissection before, but children must be supervised by a parent. Brains are preserved in non-toxic material.

Learn about neuroanatomy with a hands-on dissection and discuss physiology of the brain and nervous system. Find out how the brain coordinates movements, helps us process complex thoughts, and discover what is different between male and female brains!

Co-founder Bergen McMurray and Dr. Lawrence Own will begin class at 3pm, and class will run 2-3 hours, so reserve your brain now, and think of some exciting questions to bring to class on the 31st! See you in the lab!

Bergen highlights various regions of the brain

This afternoon eight members of the community participated in HiveBio’s first run of the Sheep Brain Dissection class. Co-Founder Bergen McMurray led the class through a description of the different regions of the brain and explained how the different cell types connect and function within this amazingly complex system.
