Abstract: This study presents a scientific report on the use of non-formal activities in teaching concepts of neuroscience for students from Kindergarten and Elementary School (K-12), focused on the Storytelling Workshop presented within the Playfulness Module, during the scientific event “1st Brain Week” in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In this report we analyze the use of this activity as a tool for the production of significant learning. In this way, the workshop was developed to contextualize and consolidate basics concepts of basic neuroscience. The activity is related to the neuroeducation field and the results obtained point to the importance and impact of this action and to the challenge of the use of this dynamics in non-formal science education. This scientific report also describes, analyzes and discusses the experience of a drawing workshop applied to neuroeducation study. This second activity was also developed as part of the Playfulness Module at the event for popularization of neuroscience “I Semana do Cérebro: Uma Neuraventura Sensorial” (1st Brain Awareness Week: A Sensory Neuradventure), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This workshop was based on theoretical studies of Michael Gazzaniga and Betty Edwards. The focus was the presentation of introductory material about neuroscience adapted for K-12 students. The results indicate the importance and challenge of dynamics non-formal education in neuroscience, as well as the validity of different cognitive skills exploration building a meaningful learning process, stimulating motivational interest for the study and understanding of the neuroscience content applicability. Palavras-chave: narrative, storytelling, neuroeducation, arts, neuroscience
