Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The programs were topical for Motivation, Emotion, Stress, and Health in AP Psychology courses. Students engaged in lectures, discussions, application activities, research projects, and a scavenger hunt. The goal was for students to master the curriculum objectives set forth by the College Board (with some added engagement and information courtesy of the Brain Awareness Week materials). Based on the assessment given at the end of BAW, I do believe the goals were achieved.

Feedback & Keys to Success

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

I feel BAW is highly beneficial. Students are curious about the brain and its functions; improving their understanding of basic neuroscience helps them improve awareness of their own biological and cognitive processions. I also notice students’ excitement to participate in a large-scale event such as BAW that transcends school boundaries.

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

Any kind of hands-on activities are always appreciated!
