We will be having two training sessions this week, on Thursday February 26th and Friday February 27th from 4-7pm in the Ramsay Wright student lounge (Rm. 10). Drop in any time during our sessions for training and to pick up materials. If you are just interested in learning more about Brain Day, please come out and speak with one of our execs!
We have also sent out official presentation emails for March. If you have not been matched into a presentation yet, there are still many opportunities to present during April and May so stay tuned.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Please sign up here with the following registration link if you are interested in presenting:
Thank you and we look forward to meeting you!
Hope you’re enjoying your presentations so far! This is just a quick note about the next training session and materials pick up:
If you’d like to sign up for April/May presentations, please do so by March 20th! We’ll be matching you with schools after that date, so this is your last chance to sign up for Brain Day!
If you need to pick up materials for your presentations, we’ll be having 2 more materials pick-up sessions: Monday, March 24th from 4-6 pm, and Friday, March 28th from 4-6 pm.
Friday, March 28th from 4-6 pm is also the date for our final training session, so if you have any questions about the program or want to learn more about the presentation itself, this is a great opportunity to do so. This will be the last time to pick up your materials for all of your April and May presentations, so do not forget to drop by!!
All of the materials pickup/training sessions will be at St. Hilda’s (44 Devonshire Place).
If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to contact us!

For those who have attended last week’s session, but did not receive materials, please drop by!
See you there!

We are sending out the official presentation emails tonight. If you don’t get an email tonight than you have not been matched into a presentation in March and will not have to attend the training session this Wednesday.
Don’t worry though! There will be plenty of other opportunities to present in April and May so hold tight and look for emails regarding the late March training session, we haven’t forgotten about you.
For the volunteers that receive emails, please email us back with any issues regarding scheduling conflicts, etc.
The training session starts at 4:30pm on Wednesday February 26th in Cartwright Hall (St. Hilda’s, 44 Devonshire Place).
We look forward to seeing you all there!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
