Approximate Number of People Reached:
190 preschool students, about 300 general public.
Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We conducted 14 preschool classes with our Pilot Brain Minders puppet shows, which emphasize “Taking care of Your Brain for Life.” We also created a display of the BAW materials on a Sat. at an extremely popular public market. We use a large display table, talk to the shoppers and give the booklets/pamphlets to them as they pass by our table at a main entrance. We emphasize talking to the parents of small children, and give them the Brain Awareness pencils and erasers, which they love. I think we had excellent results from both endeavors.
