I can learn more about what goes on my brain and how things work when I do certain things. For our topic we are doing a like a transgender brain. Learning on what happens to a transgender brain will explain like why I am straight. A brain can do so much more. You don’t just learn about yourself, you learn about your peer’s as well and how their brains work differently compared to yours. We are going to be young advocates to reduce teen brain health stigma by getting all the information on a teen brain and persuading them with the information we get. For example, we take the doctor terms and turning it to a teen perspective.
Sharon and Jenn from Dr. Kauffman’s lap came to High Tech to give us a presentation about rat’s brain. They give their little presentation about the rat brain. Did you know how small a mouse brain is? It’s really small compared to a human brain. Sharon and Jenn made two different activities. One was the slides and microscope. Sharon said people one the left side go to the slides first and right goes to the microscope. So Axcel and I were on the left side, we went near the sink to get a slide. On the slide it has three rat brains, but not actual rat brain. The first thing I did was put on the blue gloves on and grabbed a slide. There was a way to hold the slide, you couldn’t touch where the rat brain is. I then grabbed this blue chemical thingy and put dropped on the rat brain and waited for it to be done. Then Nuvia told us who ever was done with that will label the microscope worksheet. I got to know the different parts of the microscope.
