Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
The elementary students are always very enthusiastic, and have many questions for us. I believe the experience makes them have better understanding of their brains and bodies, and encourages them to think about careers in neuroscience and medicine.
