Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
“The Senses Land” (retracing the structure and the function of the human senses) A group of 24 students comprising both boys and girls, has combined the art of poetry, dramatization, and other kinds of art such as: painting, sculpture, music, making jewellery and even the art of cooking to represent the structure and the function of the sensory organs and the human senses. Having planned our action as presented above, we invited constructive feedback from students so as to promote a spirit of collaboration. In our efforts to further strengthen our campaign, we decided to wear T-shirts with the same printed logo on them. Eventually, our school group has decided to participate with a) an exhibition booth b) a digital audio-visual presentation of a poem c) a dramatized presentation of a debate among the sensory organs. In the first part of our presentation, the students presented a 4-minute video, a digital audio-visual presentation of a poem. Our students were inspired by an unpublished poem titled: “The Senses: the sensors of the soul” by the poet Ioanna Katsikadi.The drawings as images and the recitation of the poem as sound, compounded a 4-minute video with the soundtrack “reflections of passion" by the composer Yanni, who granted us the permission to use it.In the second part of our presentation, the students preceded an original debate with the lyrics written and the music composed by the team.
