Feedback & Keys to Success

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

In our University, Psychology program is 3 years old, the BAW let students from different programs know about the program and what are our studies about. Also, the games were a great opportunity to teaching people about the parts of the brain, the parts of the neurons and some things about the bad consequences of stress. Also, the psychology student learned about the importance to talk with other about the brain.

Did/do you like our Facebook page?

Yes

Was the information provided on Facebook useful?

The information was really helpful. Well, Our commitie of BAW in Colombia do not like the actual logo of the BAW, maybe a good idea to make a contest to change it.
