Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The two events were a workshop with pre-school and kindergarten students, followed by a general exhibit to interested University students, faculty, and staff and open to the public as announced on this site. The workshop put our Introduction to Neuroscience students in contact with Regis College Children's Center students age 4-6 for simple activities like coloring the different parts of the brain and what they do, putting together puzzles, learning about senses as well as balance and how those relate to the brain and coordinated activities like throwing a brain-shaped ball. Our students learned how children make inquiries and a bit about how to work with and present to such an audience.

Feedback & Keys to Success

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

We have some nice awareness from students and faculty about our growing programs and an activity that our kindergarten students look forward to. We have projects that Intro students work on for the semester and assessment on interests, enthusiasm, and depth.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

I will try hard to get the advertisements out earlier and wider, we have some good resources and calendars for students and faculty that could be used.
