March 2019 - Brain Awareness Week is an annual global initiative designed to raise awareness among the public about brain-related research and the impact that neuroscientists are having on the world. WIN researchers were involved in various activities, including bringing their 'Big Brain Roadshow' to Cherwell School, entertaining 270 children with the WIN Play "21st Century Phrenology" and a range of interactive stalls. Meanwhile Holly Bridge and Stuart Clare developed a phone game to test whether cramming is successful for learning, accompanied by a teachers' evening and multiple Facebook Lives with WIN researchers in partnership with Oxford Sparks.
