The Conte Center is pleased to host its 2nd Annual Brain Awareness Day on Saturday May 18, 2012 at The Knapp Center for Biomedical Discovery (KCBD), The University of Chicago.

Brain Awareness Day is composed of informal lectures and demonstrations for the public-at-large, including students (grades 7-12), teachers, parents, and the general public. The purpose of these exciting presentations is to promote public awareness and support of brain research. New knowledge and its social implications will be discussed. High school students and teachers will explore what it means to be a scientist. The event also includes "Open House Lab Visits" that provide an opportunity to learn about on-going research activities on campus. 
 
We are also pleased to announce that the 4 hour "Brain Awareness Day" program can be considered as continuing education credits for your ISBE certification. Please pick up the survey with your name badge and return the survey at the end of the program to receive your completion certification. 
 
Food and refreshments will be served. The event is free.
