This week (13-19 March 2017) is Brain Awareness Week!
This awesome initiative is an international celebration of the brain, organised by the DANA foundation, that aims to increase knowledge about the brain as well as the value of neuroscience research. As part of SANS’ mission to foster interest in the brain and provide a means of communication about neuroscience in Southern Africa, we are celebrating our first Brain Awareness Week this year. Our first project was ambitious but, we hope, successful. We have been in contact with thousands of schools across South Africa and alerted them to the free online brain information resources on our website.
Please remember, if you are interested in learning more about our amazing brain or the complex and fascinating subject of neuroscience research, there are resources to help you. Whether you are a learner, university student, teacher, or maybe just curious, please take a look at our list of resources on our education page. If you would like to know more, please stay connected and join us on Facebook (Southern African Neuroscience Society – SANS) or on Twitter (@SANeuroSoc).
We hope our first project has sparked some interest and excitement in neuroscience and would like this to be the first step in our firmly establishing Brain Awareness Week in South Africa!
Happy Brain Awareness Week everyone!
