Another Year for Brain Day!

Attention students who are interested in obtaining volunteer experience in a classroom promoting health and safety!  This is your opportunity to volunteer for Brain Day.

Brain Day is a neuroscience-based education session that elevates grade 3-6 students’ interest in the human brain and nervous system and empowers them to always use their brains to protect their bodies.  During the month of March every year, we organize a half-day program for junior elementary students presented by volunteer U of T students and their friends. Using hands on techniques, interactive discussion and fun experiments, students are engaged in discovering the science and wonders of the human brain, how it works, and how injuries can permanently affect the body.

What’s in it for you?
– Practice your presentation skills!
– Great way to bolster your CV for medical school/grad school (you will receive a certificate for participating).
– It really is a lot of fun – especially if you do it with a friend.
– No previous knowledge required – we’ll teach you all you need to know.
– LOW time commitment; you can sign up for as many or as little presentations as you want. Each presentation is only a couple of hours.

If you are interested in obtaining volunteer experience by presenting Brain Day with a partner in a local classroom, please email us at with the subject line “Brain Day Volunteer”. Just make sure to include your name and we’ll add you to our listserv.

We will be holding an information session in the second semester.
An email will be sent with more details through our listserv, so make sure you email us!

Hope to hear from you!
