Brain Architecture Game

The Brain Architecture Game is a tabletop game experience that builds understanding about the powerful role of experiences on brain development – what promotes it, what derails it and with what consequences for society. The game helps participants appreciate the impact of early childhood experiences on long term outcomes and the importance of relationships in the early years.

Led by the Discovering West Edmonton Coalition, the Edmonton Early Years Coalitions have invested in building community capacity by training over 100 Brain Architecture Game facilitators. To date the Coalitions have facilitated the game to various community groups, health professionals, teachers & support staff, City of Edmonton Green Shack leaders, colleges & universities, including: Concordia, UofA, Lethbridge, Norquest, Red Deer College, Grant MacEwan.
