Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
This event was used to show that science is everywhere. It showed how we use science to make decisions in our local pharmacy. How we use our five senses in a bakery. How our gut and brains is connected. Also, it showed how we can use nature to replenish our mental health and that there is a link between exercise and the brain. Additionally, there was a great connection between how humans and animals communicate through song.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Make sure you have community buy-in. I email superintendents of schools and all of our community partners.
