Psychology teacher Susan Hakam challenged her students’ creativity and tasked them with producing 3D brain models. Students used cake, play dough, salt dough, paper mache and even a polystyrene covered egg to create their master pieces.

The Psychologists then spoke about the different areas of the brain and how they control the body. From the frontal lobe which is responsible for motor movements, to the occipital lobe which controls vision; the students are now confident with the details of the very complex and interesting organ. – and have some impressive art work too!
