Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Educating the community about how the brain works is extremely important. Many people think the brain is too complicated to understand and want to shy away from science, but neuroscience is very accessible and relevant to everyone. Neuromyths, in particular, are rampant, and educating educators on neuromyths has been fruitful and started lots of new conversations around how people learn.
