From 15 to 21 March 2021, the 11th edition of the Brain Days in Tricity took place at the University of Gdansk. We have conducted over 70 lectures and workshops for children and adults. In addition to live webinars, we have prepared numerous games, quizzes and virtual escape rooms, as well as video materials about the brain, which are still available at the website dnimozgu.ug.edu.pl. Thanks to the online formula at Brain Awareness Week at the University of Gdańsk, the lectures and workshops were attended by over 20,000 people not only from the Tri-City and Pomerania, but also from all over Poland and even from other countries, including Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Norway and other European countries and even the USA. Thanks to a grant from the Dana Foundation and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies, over 500 children received via post a cardboard brain cap, useful for learning about the structure and functions of the cerebral cortex. The rich program of Brain Awareness Week celebrations in the Tri-City was possible thanks to the involvement of scientists, PhD students and students of the University of Gdańsk and Medical University of Gdańsk.
