BrainTrain4Kids is an interactive game geared towards introducing students to the human brain and how it can be affected by drugs. It does this by introducing students to scientific inquiry and advocating the scientific method. It includes games, quizzes, role play as well as printable materials.
The game is organised into six 'stations', which focus on scientific inquiry, brain function, the nervous system, drugs, smoking, and how to stay healthy. Each station is divided into four buildings: the first introduces the concepts, the second and third are educational lessons and the last uses games, quizzes and printable materials to consolidate learning.
The game involves 6 stages, each building on the previous and taking approximately 15 minutes.
- Increased general knowledge of drug(s) and their impact on the brain
- Increases adaptive drug-related attitudes.
