Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The project always seeks to associate three-dimensional modeling and entertainment activities (games, puzzles, etc) to explain neuroscience. An important event that can be cited was the creation of an educational workshop that showed the advantages of a bone marrow donation, its procedures all demonstrated with 3D models, and discussions of the emotional aspects involved, among other important aspects. But we can report another important event performed in the hospital outpatient clinic of neurology for children awaiting consultation and their parents where we explained about the brain, some important functions to be highlighted, using 3D models and entertainment activities that softened the harrowing moments that this group pass.
