Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We aimed to teach about the brain and nervous system. Therefore Psychology undergraduate students prepared presentations about the brain and fun activities for children. They visited one kindergarten and an education center. They taught children about different parts of the brain and their functions. The children painted brain pictures and wore brain hats. They asked questions and learned about the relationship between brain and sensations and perceptions.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

Psychology students completed their mission for one of their lectures. They need to do an activity for the benefit of society. They chose to introduce the brain and nervous system to young children. They learned about the brain and taught about the brain. Both groups benefitted and we guess some of these students will be able to be neuroscientists of the future.
