Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a series of events held around the world to increase public awareness about the brain. University of Vermont Neuroscience Graduate Program students will visit several schools during March and April as part of Brain Awareness Week. These 45-60 minute lessons are a fun way for your elementary and middle school students to learn about the brain and nervous system.
If you are interested in scheduling a lesson please fill out the form below and a grad student will contact you with more information. Please don't pass up this unique opportunity to let us educate and entertain your class with facts about the brain!
Our outreach mission is to provide web resources and hands-on activities that lead to brain and neuroscience awareness in your classroom. Activities can be performed by you or by neuroscientists from our community who you invite to your classroom. Neuroscience-related topics may include: the brain and how it works, brain health and safety, comparative neuroscience, professions in neuroscience, and more. Resources and activities are designed for differentiation in order to tailor-fit your classroom and curriculum needs.
