March 26 – Science Moms film screening and panel discussion
It’s scary stuff being a parent. Which is why parents often look for parenting advice from others. B...ut what happens when so much of this advice is based on nothing but anecdote? Or pseudoscience? Well, if you’re a science-minded mother who’s had enough, you make a movie about it. Join this special screening of “Science Moms”, followed by a panel discussion with the director of the film, the science moms, as well as Montreal science-minded parents. Free. RSVP required.
Date: Monday, March 26
Location: Frank Dawson Adams (FDA) Auditorium (3450 University St.)

Well done BrainReach! Thanks to everyone who made a donation!!
We are beyond words and understanding for your overwhelming generosity - you made the tracking neuron release dopamine!
A huge thank you to all our donors, our... volunteers past and present, Seeds of Change, the McGill Alumni Association, #McGill24, and of course our amazing director Dr. Josephine Nalbantoglu - without you, none of this would have been possible!
So does this mean the fundraising campaign has ended you ask? NO! We are still fundraising for 8 more weeks! But we thought you got all the money you needed? Additional funding would allow us to grow even more. Not only would we be able to do a premium upgrade to the materials we bring to the classroom, we would also be able to make a proper website for our volunteers and students, creating educational videos, and much more! Stay tuned for all the amazing things we've got coming up.

There is a neurological condition called hyperthymesia in which someone will remember the name of every person they have ever met. But for the rest of us, the number of people we can remember will be around 150.
