Brain Awareness Week!

Coming up later this month is Brain Awareness Week. Started in 1996 by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives to educate kids and their families about the brain and brain science.

If you are near Washington, DC check out the exhibits and activities at the National Museum of Health and Medicine. If you can’t (like most of us) see what activities there are for kids at the Neuroscience for Kids website.

Also, download this week’s Parenting Within Reason podcast where Colin interviews Dr. Joanne Deak about her book Your Fantastic Elastic Brain.

  1. Awesome; thanks for the links! I got to go to an early Dana Foundation presentation at Barrow Neurological Institute when I was a teenager. Absolutely one of the highlights of my high school years.

    My son will be all over that Neuroscience for Kids link.
