Web Site of the Week: Kids: The Dana Foundation
The Dana Foundation is on a mission to promote education about the human brain, and the Kid’s section of the organization’s website is packed with fun-filled educational activities and suggestions. Why not start with the Fun section, where readers will find links to dozens of games for elementary school, middle school, and high school students. The Lab is another great place to spend time on the site. Here readers can explore an interactive brain atlas, comparative mammalian brain collectives, and other wonders. In addition, the site features tabs dedicated to Brain Awareness Week, which takes place each March, and resources designed to help Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and other related groups plan a troop meeting about neuroscience. Finally, Recent Articles appear at the bottom of the page and cover such topics as cognitive impairment from soccer head injuries and the mysteries of the teenage brain. [CNH]
