Title:  Brain Matters: How Stress Impacts the Teenage Brain

Presenters: Tim Blesse (Teacher Programs Coordinator,  Denver Museum of Nature and Science)

Description:    Uncertainty and lack of predictability can stimulate the biological mechanisms of stress. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to take a practical look at the science of stress from the perspectives of neuroscience and behavior. How do we benefit from stress and get harmed by it? How can we and our teenage students regulate stress in a way that promotes health and learning? You will have the opportunity to learn from the research of experts and interact with peers in a meaningful way.
