Brain Awareness Day

Every May, the Centre for Neuroscience Studies plays host to approximately 250 grade 5 students from local elementary schools. The students enjoy a daylong event where they are engaged in demonstrations, activities, and hands-on experiments to teach them all about neuroscience research. The day of the event, the students are asked to submit research posters to us which are on display. The top posters are rewarded with prizes. This is an exceptionally well-received event with waiting lists each year of schools looking to participate.
