Explore the wonderful world of the human brain. Find out what part of your brain helps you talk, think, smell and feel. Answer questions to find out if you are right-brained or left-brained. We will talk about traumatic brain injury and why you need helmets and seat belts. Design and build a “helmet” for a pseudo-brain (raw egg) and drop it from a significant height to test your design. All age levels will get to dissect an actual sheep brain. Classes can get messy. Students should wear clothes that they don't mind getting stained.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY FORM: A waiver of liability form must be completed for each student and submitted before the start date of the camp/class/workshop in order for your student to attend any College for Kids or College for Teens program. Visit mccneb.me/waiver to complete and submit this form before the start date of your class.

ALLERGIES: It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to notify us of any allergies that a student may have. It is important for us to know this information before camp begins. Please note, courses held at the Institute for the Culinary Arts are held in commercial kitchens with allergens present, and while all efforts possible will be made to keep students out of direct contact with allergens, no room can be guaranteed as allergen-free. If your student has allergies, please complete our allergy form at mccneb.me/allergy.

REFUND POLICY: Cancellations made by MCC are fully refunded. Full refunds will be issued to students who withdraw from camp/workshop at least one business day prior to the camp start date. Full refunds will be issued to students who withdraw from culinary camps at least seven business days prior to the camp start date. No credit will be issued for any camps/ workshops dropped on or after the camp start date. To withdraw your registration, please call 531-MCC-5231.

ACCOMODATIONS: If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in any program or activity, please contact Disability Support Services at 531-MCC-3841 as soon as possible in advance of the program for consideration of your accommodations request. It is helpful to receive accommodations requests at least 10 days in advance of a program. With less advance notice, it may be difficult to meet needs of interested members.
