What’s Best for My Brain?
The GCC North Psychology Club participated in “Brain Awareness Week,” held in mid-March at the Arizona Science Center. Participants spent their time playing a game entitled “What’s Best for My Brain” with children who were visiting the Science Center.
The children discussed how their brains can help them memorize poems, ride a skateboard, dream, add, learn, kick a soccer ball, breath, and much more. They learned about choices that lead to brain health, including: proper nutrition; challenging mental activities, such as puzzles and reading; prompt attention to homework; physical activity, including outdoor play; and safe conduct, including crossing in a crosswalk instead of the middle of a street.
Dr. Elizabeth Jacobs from the Psychology Department led the team of GCC students, including Kelly Jaspar, Kelsie Ewart, Debra Blum and Mark Arlia.
