Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

A group of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders came to University of Delaware to explore interactive neuroscience/STEM exhibits and then tour an MRI facility, a Nanofabrication Lab, and a Microscopy/Microanalysis Center. Our main goal was to provide underrepresented students the opportunity to experience interactive science, research, and technology that they may not have the opportunity to experience in school.

Feedback & Keys to Success

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

The support we received from the DANA Foundation increased the quality of our event dramatically and tremendously helped students get excited about the brain as well as providing useful information about the brain in a fun and exciting way. It’s great to see the students light up when receiving the brain erasers and mini-booklets and start asking further questions. :]
