Brain Day at the Carnegie Museum 2010  

Shoshanna Conkright takes a lie detector test from Wabash psychology depaartment intern Xumin Sun ’13. She finally made the readings on the screen spike when she answered "yes" to the question: Have you ever ridden a dinosaur?

Carnegie Museum Director Kat Burkhart said partnerships with Wabash such as Brain Day and the very popular Pi Day—the March 13th event that brings Wabash physics and math professors and students to the museum for "five tables of demonstrations, hair-raising fun, lasers, and more"—are very popular with visitors.

"Our core visitors come for both days, because they know they will be really cool and special events," Burkhart said. She hopes to work with other departments at the College to present similar events, noting the work of Wabash interns in getting the events off the ground: "Jacob Castilow, who just graduated, was our intern who helped get these started and Nolan Eller ’11, our current intern, has been a great help."
