Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

Our event was called "Brain STEM". We invited local homeschooled children to participate in engaging activities about the brain. Some activities included: creating a play doh neuron, a game on movement, two-point discrimination test, taste testing (perception), and a memory game. It was very successful and the kids LOVED the brain erasers. All of the students who put on the event said it was really fun and even helped them learn the information (which was the main objective of the program).
