Brain Health Challenge presented by AARP and Booz Allen Hamilton

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Research from the Global Council on Brain Health (a collaborative from AARP) found that stimulating our brains through a variety of healthy behaviors can impact how well our brains function. These behaviors include keeping fit, learning new things, eating right, sleeping well, and being social. Their research recommends that people begin incorporating these healthy behaviors into their lifestyle as soon and as regularly as possible.

At Techweek DC, participants will have the opportunity to stimulate their brains at the Brain Health Challenge. This immersive BetaBox experience allows people to learn and do new things, including:
  • Explore various aspects of a human brain in 3D via a HoloLens and identify zones for attention, processing speed, executive function, and memory
  • Engage their cognitive functions via a 2-minuted “seated” canoe VR experience
The box will be positioned outside of event locations on Tuesday through Friday of Techweek. See schedule for details.
