Brain Day is MBS's largest neuroscience education event of the year and it is a free program that allows members of all ages and backgrounds in the Boston community to explore the wonders of the brain and nervous system.
The event is run by undergraduates who spend over a month preparing stations that cover a myriad of topics in neuroscience such as structures of the brain through histology, motor learning through mirror drawing, neuroanatomy, traumatic brain injuries, and more!
Additionally, a panel of renowned speakers in the field will discuss their areas of interest/expertise and current students talk about career paths in neuroscience and their college experiences.
WHY IS NEUROSCIENCE EDUCATION IMPORTANT?
Neuroscience education is important for everyone, not just scientists, because we should know how to care for and understand the marvels of our brain. Neuroscience is an emerging field so unfortunately, this means that neuroscience education is under-represented in schools, and if you do not study it in college, the average person has very little exposure to it other than through pop science. At Brain Day, we look at the truths behind pop science and also share other neuroscience information that could greatly benefit the everyone, from children to adults. As students interested in neuroscience, we feel that it is important we spread our knowledge, and hopefully contribute to the future of neuroscience by engaging the community in discussions rooted in neuroscience education.
WHY DONATE? /
*Donations are now closed*
We greatly appreciate all of the support, check back for future ways to support Brain Day.
Brain day takes a lot of work, planning, and materials to coordinate. We will use the money to expand current stations and create new ones, to help promote and gain greater visibility for the event in the Boston community, and to allow anyone to come to this event by keeping it free. We appreciate donations of all amounts as each gets us one step closer to funding Brain Day and promoting neuroscience education in this wonderful community. Thank you for your time and support!
