Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
BAW is a great way to reach out to the public and make them more aware of the neuroscience research happening on our campus. For the classroom visits, it was a way to support teachers in delivering engaging science activities. We tied the workshop to the grade 5 curriculum, which has a unit on human body systems.
