Brain Waves Committee

Brain Waves is a free, informative and fun half-day neuroscience presentation for students in grades 4 to 6. Trained volunteers with an understanding and passion for injury prevention bring the hands-on program, which includes activity booklets, helmet fitting tips, and Jello Brains, to classrooms cross Canada.

Students learn about different parts of the brain, basic neuroscience vocabulary, and how and why it's important to protect their brain and spinal cord. By bringing this program into the classroom, teachers are giving their students a new awareness of the brain and spinal cord, and providing them with simple strategies to prevent injury.

We will be training volunteers to deliver this presentation in September 2016.  If you are interested in being a part of this fun-filled presentation - please contact Deanna Rector at 705-542-3862.

We had favourable comments from the teacher’s evaluations and hope to present to more in the spring of 2017 for more information
