Students at Brayton School celebrated a very important body part recently, when March was declared as Brain Awareness Month at the Summit school.

Students in every grade enjoyed learning about the brain through lessons, projects, and special activities. A Neuroscience Fair was held the evening of March 31 to mark the closing of Brain Month and to exhibit to parents and other guests what the students had learned.


The fair, which focused on topics related to the brain, was coordinated by Principal Dr. Cheryl Moretz and teacher Matthew Stanbro and was open for participation to third, fourth, and fifth graders. The students created their own research questions, designed experiments, and through the scientific process reached conclusions. Exhibits of their experiments were on display at the fair.
