Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

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.

Event Planning & Publicity

Publicity Methods Used:

  • Social Media

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

Since we actually just had our materials/events set up in places where students already are (school), we just attempted to be visible. Advertising is a bit less important when you have a ready-made audience.

Resources

Of the Dana Foundation publications/resources distributed at your event(s), if any, please indicate the three most popular. Please choose up to three. If "other," please indicate below:

  • BAW Stickers
  • BAW Pencils
  • Brain-shaped Erasers
  • The Mindboggling Workbook

What other downloadable materials would you like the Foundation to provide?

  • New Fact Sheets
  • New Coloring Sheets

Feedback & Keys to Success

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

The booth definitely raised interest about neuroscience among our students. Many expressed excitement about being able to learn more about these topics during future classes (psychology, anatomy)
