Listen: At UW, A Science Fair For Schoolkids Features Human Brains And Spinal Cords
Each March, scientists around the world host open houses to get people thinking about the brain.
The events are all part of Brain Awareness Week.
At the University of Washington, that means the mother of all science fairs in a room decked out with human brains, spinal cords, finch chirping and flying fruit flies.
Take an audio tour of an event that drew more than 650 elementary and high school students.
