“I am happy to announce that two of my students at the Children’s School of Excellence [CSE] won the 2007 University of Washington Neuroscience for Kids Art Contest.
There were over 1200 entries from all over the world, and Airies Hygaard and Evan Hawkins both won in the K-2 grade category…and they are only in Kindergarten! They drew colorful neurons, comparing their brain to a growing tree. The theme for this grade was
“My brain helps me…”
Over the year, we have studied the brain, and this contest fit right into our Kindergarten curriculum. Many students from CSE participated and all the drawings were unique and wonderful.
It is very exciting to see that the University of Washington knows the importance of teaching about the brain to young children.
