Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

Brain Awareness Week plays an important role in our community, since it is often difficult to find information about the brain and scientific advances in this field. we usually bring people closer to the reality of these investigations.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

We will try to do activities for people who study the preparatory level, since we believe that this population could benefit from knowing about all these activities.
