The Brain Awareness Campaign (BAC) is described by its founding organization, the Dana Foundation, as “the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research”. Every year, organizations worldwide reach out to the community to educate and celebrate the brain and brain research. Volunteers consist of students (undergraduate and graduate) and faculty from the Neuroscience department and the Brain and Cognitive Sciences department at the University of Rochester. So far, BAC has reached almost three thousand children and have consistently received excellent feedback from teachers, with many requesting revisits or recommending the program to fellow teachers.
If you’re enthusiastic about sharing neuroscience with the public, please volunteer! We really appreciate the help. You can email us back at firstname.lastname@example.org.
