Brain research has so much to contribute in education. These grants will enable hundreds of students to experience education that is better adapted to the way the brain learns, and that helps them build the cognitive skills that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives.
We look forward to working with the successful applicants on their implementation of BrainWare SAFARI and SkateKids, as well as interacting with teachers in the online course. Congratulations to all of the grant recipients!
