St. Luke’s University Health Network is proud to present The MEGA Brain, the world’s only portable, inflatable, walk-through brain exhibit.
Da Vinci Science Center outreach educators travel with The MEGA Brain to events across the Lehigh Valley and deliver hands-on science programs for curious minds of all ages. Book an event for your school, scout or youth group, community organization, or family.
Explore The MEGA Brain
Participants enter through the frontal lobe, which is responsible for personality and higher cognitive functions, and exit through the cerebellum, the portion of the brain that controls balance and coordination. Along the way, they learn about:
Stroke, addiction, and other common brain conditions
How to keep your brain healthy
The latest medical treatments for brain trauma and disease
The MEGA Brain showcases a variety of features, both inside and outside the brain, including:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Other MEGA Brain Appearances
The MEGA Brain comes to the Da Vinci Science Center and St. Luke’s University Health Network sponsored events throughout the year. Scheduled appearances include Healthcare Career Exploration Days in March. Weekday programs are great for school groups and homeschooled families.
The MEGA Brain is part of Exploration Medicine, a partnership between Da Vinci Science Center and St. Luke’s University Health Network, which brings St. Luke’s healthcare expertise to science center education programs.

Jane and her grandkids are sure glad it does. “If the Da Vinci Science Center didn’t exist, the kids wouldn’t have these opportunities to gain greater knowledge of science. Every parent wants to give their children the opportunity to achieve at their highest levels. By experiencing science at this level, kids are more encouraged, excited, and interested in STEAM fields.”
Join Jane and her family in supporting the Da Vinci Science Center tomorrow at 8 a.m. $10 can bring science to life for one under-served student. With Facebook’s #GivingTuesday match, $10 becomes $20 and one under-served student becomes two!
