This new, exciting project is funded by the MDX Sustainable Campus Initiative, with £1000 awarded to Enactus MDX students to lead on the project. The idea is to design and build the brain from recycled plastic bottles so that it can be proudly displayed as a piece of art on campus, and at events.
If you would like to be involved in building a giant brain then you are invited to submit preliminary sketches and designs to the project team. The brief outline can be found below, and if you could like further information please email Dr Christopher J Moon firstname.lastname@example.org.

Enactus MDX is a new student society which allows students to work on practical projects with a real social or environmental impact related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. During 2019 Enactus MDX students competed in the regional and national finals of the Enactus competition. Participants in Enactus have the opportunity to participate in training sessions at employer organisations, attend careers fayres with employers and attend the World Cup hosted in different countries across the globe.
For more information contact out Enactus MDX university advisers Dr Christopher Moon and Amanda Brace. New Enactus team members are needed for the next academic year and Enactus research shows that students that have Enactus on their CV have a much higher application to hire ratio with employers.
