Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We had various worksheets about the brain for different age groups as well as a true or false game and some information sheets. Our objective was to teach K-12 students new things about the brain in an interactive way. We achieved our goals through the worksheets because since we had such a large variety of worksheets everyone was able to find something that they did not know. Also, we had candy available if somebody did something well which inspired them to learn more.
