Brain Awareness Week

Every year volunteers with the Society for Neuroscience, Ottawa Chapter tour local high schools and elementary schools to give neuroscience presentations. In 2017 we gave over 100 presentations, covering over 2500 students in Ottawa area schools, teaching brain facts and giving fun demonstrations including prizes and give-aways. For elementary school students we focus on the 5 senses while at high schools we give presentations on learning and memory, concussion, sleep and dreaming, or the effects of drugs on the brain.
