Our club created a library display in the school library, highlighting books on neuroscience-related topics that are available for student check out. We also created a posterboard display for an interactive booth exhibit that we staffed during two high school lunch periods and during our school’s public “STEM Night” activities (which are open to the general public). Visitors to the booth could play a brain trivia game and win prizes.
