About the Product

More than 2 decades ago, in the first three days of January 1997, two hundred million internet hits were made to follow the progress of a space probe to Mars. Your brain makes fifteen times as many new connections in one second as the world’s internet users made back then in three days.

We now know that every new learning forms new connections in the brain, and strengthens old connections. We now know that each one of your brain cells is many times more powerful than the most powerful computer ever invented.

Each one of these cells connects to hundreds of thousands of other cells which, in turn, shuttle information back and forth between tens of thousands of others. Each cell, or neuron is capable of making more than twenty thousand connections with other cells.

The 10 titles in the building better brain resources ‘for the young and the young at heart’ will explain more about the workings of your brain and the many and varied thought-provoking activities will help to build a better brain.

Brain Waves:

We know how important it is to look after your body, but it is equally important to look after your brain. If your brain could not operate you would not be aware of anything at all. It is extremely important to keep challenging your brain so that it continues to learn and to operate efficiently and effectively.

We thought of describing our collection as ‘for everyone from 8 to 80’ but it soon became apparent that some activities will intrigue some children younger than 8 years, and others will puzzle senior citizens older than 80 - so our final description is ‘for the young, and the young at heart’.

When Robert Palmer began his training at Ballarat Teachers’ College in the 1960’s his experiences had been as a receiver of education, rather than an encourager of thinking. The political climate at the time was all about ‘individual differences’ and ‘thematic studies’, but very few knew what these really meant. Robert certainly didn’t. While...
