AAAS and Learning & the Brain Conferences

This weekend, Dana Foundation staff are traveling to opposite coasts to exhibit at conferences in San Francisco and Boston, and we hope to see you there!

In California, we’ll have a table at the Learning & the Brain conference (February 17-19), “The Science of How We Learn: Engaging Memory, Motivation, Mindsets, Making and Mastery.” Stop by for free publications, puzzles, brain-shaped erasers, and our ever-popular squeeze brains (they go fast!). For those interested in Brain Awareness Week (March 13-19), you’re in luck, as the director of the campaign, Kathleen Roina, will be there to answer any questions you may have.


At the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Boston, staff will be on hand at booth 820 from February 17-19, to answer questions about what we do and the many publications we have. Of course, we’ll have squeeze brains and brain-shaped erasers there, too! Saturday and Sunday are designated free Family Science Days for the public, so if you’re in the Boston-area, consider stopping by the conference to see kid-friendly science demonstrations and participate in hands-on activities. Registration is required, but it’s quick and easy!

If you aren’t attending either conference, don’t fret, we have most of our publications and puzzles available as free downloads on our website,; quite a few are available in other languages. If you prefer hard-copies, you can always look into becoming a registered Brain Awareness Week partner, which enables you to order free copies of our publications, as well as Brain Awareness Week pencils and stickers, and brain-shaped erasers.

We’ll also be reporting from the AAAS conference, so follow us on Twitter to catch our coverage of brain-related talks.

We hope to meet you this weekend!

– Ann L. Whitman
