Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We conducted activities in classrooms, K-8, including lessons about neuroplasticity and brain health. Every student in our school system was exposed to daily "brain trivia" via morning announcements for BAW in each elementary, middle, and high school. We gained publisher permission for an elementary school student to read "A Walk in the Rain with a Brain" on our television channel along with interesting graphics. This was designed to engage preschool families and elementary students and parents. Our goals were achieved and we look forward to 2018.
