Brain Awareness Week

03/20/2019 - 06/21/2019

Location: Fort Collins, On-campus, Within Colorado

Event/Activity Description

The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) program at CSU is an annual event that typically impacts 1000 middle and high school students. Volunteers from CSU provide 10-12 interactive stations at each school that cover topics including sensory systems, neurological diseases and fixed neuroanatomy specimens. Most volunteers are CSU students so the events also provide younger students with the opportunity to interact and talk to college students. The BAW director works closely with science teachers from each school to provide the best experience possible. We typically hold 3-4 separate events each year. Each event is held at a different school, usually in Fort Collins, but we’ve also visited Loveland and Frisco, Colorado.
