Brain Awareness Week (BAW) was celebrated on March 1, 2011 at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI). Nearly 700 students in grades 4-12 attended an Open House.

Thank you to all our supporters, volunteers, and sponsors! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Teacher comments
The kids LOVED the hands-on activities!! It was the perfect opening activity to our unit on the human body - starting, of course, with the brain and nervous system!

Thank you for offering this trip as a free trip! Schools are having a hard time finding educational field trips these days that are affordable and this was a terrific opportunity in a financial sense and in an academic sense!
