Feedback & Keys to Success

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

We were able to show our work in the field of brain research to the public. The many interesting questions from the audience showed us that the interest is great and also gives us ideas and motivation for our work. Some of the students became more interested in research.
