Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We hosted local high school students for an evening of learning and fun. Our theme this year was disorder and we had 2nd year Uni students hosting stations discussing various issues which arise when the human brain is not functioning correctly. High school students provided positive feedback. Unfortunately we did not see as many schools as previous events. I think the organisation required of schools to bring their students along is quite daunting
