A journey inside the brain - Sydney

Drummoyne, Australia

Experience hosted by Phil

2 hours
Includes food, equipment
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

This is a CovidSafe experience registered with the NSW Government. Non-family or friendship guests will need to socially distance. As a health worker, I'm fully Covid vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine.

You'll venture inside your brain with me - Phil Dye (the brain guy) using a range of safe, high-tech electroencephalograph (EEG) headsets. You'll see your neurons firing in real time and learn what makes you different or similar to others.

You'll then play a game using only your mind to control the characters and compete against your friend or another guest. It's fascinating and lots of fun.

Switch headsets to get a different view of your brain and check how well you can lower the amount of electricity your brain produces - the key to successful meditation.

You can also pick my brain while enjoying the surroundings of the beautiful Oxford Hotel in Drummoyne. I'll buy you snacks (pizza etc) yet you'll buy your own drinks.

The experience will be 2-2.5 hours depending on the number of guests.

Other things to note
You MUST bring your own face mask although hand sanitizer is supplied
*** An EEG WILL NOT work through a wig or dreadlocks
** Please be at the venue 5 minutes before start time.
* Bring a hair-tie if you have long hair

This was one of the best experiences that we have had. Phil was amazing and so entertaining. He really made it such a fun and informative afternoon. We didn’t want to leave! We have already referred our family and friends to Phil’s experience. The venue was fabulous and so was the food!

That was very fun! We've learned a lot of things about our brains. Phil is truly passionate and is sharing his knowledge in a playful way.

We had an absolutely terrific time with Phil. Not only was the experience immensely enjoyable, Phil also is a wonderful storyteller who explained the science, answered our questions and whet our appetites to know more. If I went in curious, I came out amazed and more curious. Infact, I'll definitely go if Phil creates a more 'advanced' experience. I highly recommend the experience to anyone even remotely interested in their brain, and I think kids (ten years or older), with a passion for science, will find the experience inspiring.

My partner and I had an awesome time with Phil on this experience. He's very knowledgeable and made us feel welcome. Very fun way to spend a Monday night, would recommend to anyone with an interest in learning more about how their brain works.

I can't recommend this enough! We were a group of 6 and we had an awesome time with Phil. We all learnt so much, while being thoroughly entertained at the same time. Phil is a great educator. If you're thinking about it, just do it.
