LearningRx Chattanooga Brain Training Center will host a free event called Brain Ninja Games Day, designed to introduce children ages 6 through 12 to mental and physical workouts through a series of friendly competitions. Participants will test their brain power, black belt skills and balancing abilities plus enjoy healthy food and prizes. The event will be held on February 15, 3:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., in the small gym at the North River YMCA.
Brain Ninja Games Day is part of a national initiative to raise awareness about the brain’s ability to change at any age. LearningRx brain training centers across the United States are holding a similar Brain Olympics event. The free event will be an entertaining but low-pressure environment to allow children to flex their mental and physical muscles with a day of cognitive competitions, including:
• Memory Marathon – how many words can you remember?
