Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We had a table set up with a brain model and description of different parts of the brain identified. There were lessons during class on the brain and videos from the DANA foundation were shown. The goal was to make the students more aware of the brain and the wonderful things it can do. Having a comprehensive display is often tricky as there is so much to learn. The foundation should provide more display posters that are very detailed and informational.
