Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

Brain Day at Crestwood Elementary School was a capstone project for one of our senior students. High school students did brain-related activities with third graders. It was a fantastic experience for everyone involved. Our Lunch in The Library program had AP Biology students presenting demos and activities for other high school students. It was a success. Finally, our annual Faculty E-Mail Brain Trivia Contest went very well.
