Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Participating in Brain Awareness is always beneficial to our communities. It allows communities who normally do not have access to neuroscientists access to their expertise and prospectives. It also allows the neuroscientists themselves to see what non-professional scientists are really concerned about in their daily lives.

The Town Hall format worked really well. There was tons of student engagement and the submitted questions were really interesting.
