CJ from John Fluevog Shoes in Calgary took the Beakerhead #OtherHandChallenge and showed us that we should not leave packaging Christmas gifts with our non-dominant hand … unless we wanted to be included in the packaging!
Donations to Beakerhead for the creation of life-long learning programs at the crossroads of art and science, are always welcome and appreciated – click here to donate.

Get your brain firing on all cylinders! Beakerhead is asking you to use your opposite hand on December 1, 2015.
From brushing your teeth to starting your car (good luck!), we challenge you to use your non-dominant hand all day! Doing small things differently strengthens neural connections in your brain… scientists say so!
Don’t forget to share your misadventures on social media with #OtherHandChallenge to @Beakerhead.
If you slip up and use your usual hand it’s time to invest in your brain in other ways – by donating to Beakerhead!

Are you left or right brained? Surprise! You are only ‘brained’! The idea that you have a dominant brain hemisphere is not scientifically true. The thinking that left brainers are logical, good with mathematics and languages while right brainers are creative and artistic is just not true. Brain hemispheres do not operate independently. We all use our whole brains.
