Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

For K-3 We will be having a simple diagram of the brain. We will ask the students to color the lobes (they will be numbered). Then we will explain what each lobe does. We will also give another brain diagram that shows specifically what the brain does. There will be a large brain to where we can explain made from construction paper. High School: We will say a fun fact over morning announcements At lunch we will hand out a paper with brain teasers and such for them to solve Middle School: we will have the large poster with the names of colors on them, but they will be different colors than what they would be, which would trip the heck out of the kids 4th/5th Ask the trivia questions to the students who come up and if they answer correctly or try they will receive a brain eraser

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

BAW was good not only for the psychology students leading the initiative, but it also helped educate our entire student body on how important their brain is and how they can make it work better for them. I hope that in the future I have a greater interest in high school psychology as students see what BAW can expose them to.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
