Weʼve raised £10 to neuroscience
- Funded on Wednesday, 20th December 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Last year we managed to raise £230 through crowdfunding, and it would not have been possible if it wasn't for you guys! The event was an absolute success, and you can see the report on our website !
We are back now, and hoping to be able to organise an even bigger annual event in Spring 2018! It is a neuroscience competition for high school students and aims to inspire them to learn about the brain and become motivated to pursue careers in neuroscience research.
Talks by neuroscientists and information booths demonstrating brain-related experiments will be arranged to engage the participants, their parents and teachers during the breaks. Students will also have the opportunity to talk with a variety of experts and/or apprentices in the field of neuroscience over drinks and snacks. The competition will involve a live question-and-answer section with neuroscientists as judges, a neuroanatomy section where students must identify parts of the brain and their function, and a short written quiz. We will also arrange activity booths with small neuroscience-related experiments as well as engaging talks by neuroscientists during the intervals. We will provide participants with catering on the day. Prizes will be awarded to the top five winners of the competition, and the first-place winner will be invited to participate in the International Brain Bee World Championship !!!
We were hoping, and would be exceptionally grateful, that you might be willing to provide some financial support to make sure all students gain as much experience as possible, and enjoy this event to the maximum!
Thank you very much for your consideration and supporting this science outreach initiative. If you have any questions do not hesitate do get in contact with us - We would be more than happy to have a chat about the event!
All the best :)
