Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The event was designed with the aim of exposing elementary school children to the structure and functions of the human brain and describing memory formation.
The program featured two learning sessions and activities. Lesson one (Brain structures and functions) started with a knowledge assessment of the pupils and was followed by teaching the focus topic which was delivered with the aid of a PowerPoint presentation. It was highly interactive and engaging. The pupils took notes and asked questions that were answered. Lesson one ended with an activity in which the pupils were randomly divided into five groups having a resource person for each. The pupils were shown brain models and fixed human brains. This was aimed at making them appreciate the physical structure and representation of the human brain. During this activity, they were able to closely appreciate the human brain, and identify the various parts and associated functions. It was a delight to behold as many were inspired and remained engaged during the activity.
Lesson two, which commenced after a short break was on “memory.” The meaning, stages of memory storage, and types of memory were treated, and also parts of the brain associated with memory were projected on a screen. The session ended with an activity on memory where twenty (20) pictures were projected on a screen for 30 seconds. Following this, the pupils were asked to identify, recollect and write down the names of objects or animals displayed after the projection was removed.
At the end of the event, the pupils were able to describe the structure of the human brain, list its functions and describe memory formation.
