Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

Our event consisted of taking our “Brain Cart” and expanding the activities to serve more guests. The general public was able to walk up to our table and test reflexes, use distortion goggles, learn about neurons, and talk about health brains. Each person had the opportunity to take home a pencil, booklet, sticker, or eraser. We offered these extended activities on two separate days during peek hours.
