Brain Awareness Week 2012

Jefferson Kinney

Brain Awareness Week is a world-wide campaign to promote public awareness about the brain and current brain research. We brought the first ever Brain Awareness Week to Las Vegas by visiting Wallin Elementary to teach the 4th graders all about the brain! Following an interactive lesson, students participated in various hands-on activities, including things like building a neuron and matching various animal brains (based on weight) with the proper animal.

Thank you Wallin Elementary for allowing us to come and share our passion about the brain with you!
