Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
20 students from my school's 1st grade studied the impact of sleep and dreaming on memory and learning. Our goal was to show that making homework late at night and constantly loosing sleep has negative effect on school performance. We visited a lab on the university were we gathered more sophisticated information on our subject. We made a ppt containing our conclusions and also a little video showing students who were studying for a test late at night and then failed. One of the kids painted also two artistist illustrrations of the brain. Finally we presented our work, with other schools, in public.
