Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
This is the second time the Experimental Neuropharmacology Lab (LNE) participates of the BAW and it's very successful. Students from all the schools we visited got so excited about the lectures and about the team lab.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Lectures and visitings about neurosicence in schools. This year, we decided to go to schools in order to tell them how important and beautiful neurosicence research is. Besides, events in parks around the city is a good idea, because it may reach hundreds of people of all ages
