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

Interest in the brain. The high school requested another lecture from the Mexican Association of Neuroethics regarding mental health in adolescents, including suicide.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

Teenagers had a great response in brain topics. The school was interested in in involving primary and middle school as well for next years BAW. My suggestion is to proactively involve communities, do not underscore their interest!!
