Brain Awareness Week: Sharing Your Passion for Science


Share Your BAW Stories

Share photos of your brain awareness outreach activities by emailing high-resolution photos and captions to baw@sfn.org or by tweeting them to @SfNtweets, #BAW or #BrainWeek.

In March, SfN members and chapters hosted a variety of Brain Awareness Week (BAW) events, ranging from Brain Bees to science festivals. One chapter even organized a bus that drove around the streets of New York City sharing brain science. Take a look at the photos above to see just a few of this year's BAW celebrations.

Continue neuroscience outreach year-round with members-only resources from Neuronline, and check out the BAW webinar on BrainFacts.org that features information on outreach activities for people of all ages. 

You can also get involved with neuroscience outreach by producing an educational video about the brain and entering it in the Brain Awareness Video Contest. The first-place winner is awarded $1,000, plus a free trip to SfN’s annual meeting.
