Thinking Things!

$170.00$320.00

Thinking Things! will blow your young person’s mind! Through thought fuelled activities, we will take a deep dive into thinking about thinking. We will perform crazy sciency experiments to work out what it is to have a mind and what is our relationship to other thinking things. Built around four sections, we will start out with human minds and consciousness, then move on to animals, then plants, and ending on how we should treat other minds. The camp will try to find answers to some very BIG questions: What is it to have a mind? Who are the thinking things? Are fungi networks kinds of neural networks? Is your phone an extension of your mind?

Eurekamp Oz! programs run from 9 am to 3:30 pm, daily.

Thinking Things! will blow your young person’s mind! Through thought fuelled activities, we will take a deep dive into thinking about thinking. We will perform crazy sciencesque experiments to work out what it is to have a mind and what is our relationship to other thinking things. We will start out with human minds and consciousness, then move on to animals, plants, and artificial intelligence, and ending on how we should treat other minds. The camp will explore answers to some very BIG questions: What is it to have a mind? Are fungi networks kinds of neural networks? Are computers an extension of our minds? Who ARE the thinking things?
