Brain Day is a neuroscience-based education session that elevates studentsu2019 interest in the human brain and nervous system and empowers them to always use their brains to protect their bodies. During March, April and May every year, we organize a half-day program for elementary and middle school students. Using hands-on techniques, interactive discussions and fun experiments, students are engaged in discovering the science and wonders of the human brain, how it works, and how injuries can permanently affect the body. Our mission is to raise awareness about the irreparable nature of brain damage and the importance of protecting the brain. We do this by bringing together UofT student volunteers with an interest in the central nervous system with the goal of empowering the community for a long-term health cause; and in so doing, allowing them to apply their knowledge of basic neuroscience and neuroanatomy as educators in a classroom. As a final take-home message, we train children in the necessary custom of wearing protective gear in a proper and consistent manner. Brain Day is a wonderful experience for both students and volunteers, and an incredible opportunity to give students new knowledge of the brain and provide them with simple strategies to prevent injury.
