Join EBRL on your feet on National Walking Day! (4/3/19)

Jump up on your feet and get your steps in today! The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day! Here at Vanderbilt we got out and took a short break from doing research to go and stretch our legs with a good long walk!

The team was there, bright and early before all of the patrons, setting up our stations, a fun journey through the reading brain. We brought our handy-dandy “portable MRI” so the kids could all see what it was like to be a part of one of our research studies, and played they scanner noises so people could know what an MRI sounded like. Then, they got to color their way through each part of the reading network, and play a fun game for each part! At the very end, they got to even make their own reading network. The day was filled with fun and learning about the brain and the visitors never stopped!
