Posted on Friday, March 20, 2015

Westminster College neuroscience students will host Brain Awareness Day activities for local high school students 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 25 in the Witherspoon Rooms, Hoyt Science Center and Phillips Lecture Hall.

Students will provide attendees with three activities: Brain Games, using knowledge to exhibit understanding of brain function; the Brain Bee, answering questions about the brain's structure; and Brain Research, gaining hands-on experience in experimenting at Westminster. Students will have an opportunity to tour Westminster's labs and facilities following the activities.

The event is being held in support of a global campaign run by the Dana Foundation to increase awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research.

For more information, or to sign up for next year’s Brain Awareness Day, contact Deanne Buffalari at or 724-946-7358.
