Summary of Proposal
We propose to raise public awareness about the brain, neuroscience research, and brain tissue donations by hosting
the Brain Balloon Project during the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) 2006 Annual Meeting in Atlanta. The brain
balloon is a nine-story, hot air balloon shaped like a human brain. Excitement is inherent with such a huge brain,
and we will add a neuroscience education component of hands-on neuroscience activities presented at the base of
the balloon. The potential for public education is enormous, as is the opportunity for neuroscientists to engage in
public education.

After the Brain Balloon Project, the Brain Booth Teaching Modules will become part of a “Lending Library” of
materials available for local neuroscientists to take into K-12 classrooms during Brain Awareness Month. Overall,
this project will enable us to promote several strategic goals of SfN, including the design and implementation of a
“novel initiative linked to neuroscience literacy and education”. It will also increase “involvement of SfN members
and chapters in public education and outreach.” We hope to leverage funds from SfN with funds from local and
national partners, including the Autism Tissue Program of Autism Speaks, making the Brain Balloon Project viable
and exciting for the Atlanta Chapter.
Specific Goals of Proposal
Goal 1: To recruit and train neuroscience students and investigators to engage in public education by designing
hands-on neuroscience activities and presenting them at the base of the brain balloon.
Goal 2: To elevate public awareness about the brain, neuroscience research, and brain tissue donations by hosting
the Brain Balloon Project during the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) 2006 Annual Meeting in Atlanta.

Brain Balloon: The brain balloon, originated by neurosurgeon, Scott Gibbs M.D., has sparked the imagination and
curiosity of millions of observers. Gibbs said: “We’re not just flying a balloon, we’re flying a mission for education….”
Our plan for Atlanta is to enhance the scientific value of the balloon by recruiting neuroscientists to provide fun,
instructional, hands-on neuroscience activities for balloon visitors. The inflation process takes two hours and the
balloon remains inflated for two hours, for a program duration of approximately four hours.

Atlanta Chapter: The Atlanta Chapter of the SfN maintains a strong commitment to brain awareness throughout the
year with school visits and public events, but we focus our efforts on Brain Awareness Month (March). In 2006, we
visited nearly 100 K-12 classes and over 3,500 students. We also participated in a Neuroscience Expo at Zoo
Atlanta. Nearly 4,000 zoo visitors participated in interactive activities similar to those we propose to design for the
brain balloon. Finally, our Lending Library of neuroscience teaching materials provides models, kits, supplies, and
lesson plans for volunteers to use. The SfN Annual Meeting here in Atlanta provides another unique opportunity to
bring neuroscience education to our public.

Goal 1 Summary: We aim to recruit and train neuroscience students and investigators to engage in public
education by designing and implementing hands-on neuroscience activities for the base of the brain balloon.
Volunteers will be recruited through the Autism Speaks local walk affiliates program, as well as university and
advocacy group websites. Some volunteers will receive university internship credit. By hosting the balloon during
the SfN meeting, we also hope to collaborate with neuroscientists from outside Atlanta. Working in small groups
before the event, volunteers will identify topics to teach, then revise or design short lessons that can be modified for
audiences of different ages and stages. For example, one activity will aim to raise awareness about the importance
of brain tissue donations for neuroscience research.
Goal 1 Assessment: Brain Balloon volunteers will complete pre- and post-event surveys on their abilities to teach
neuroscience, and on public knowledge about neuroscience. These instruments will 1) measure the impact of the
volunteer experience (e.g. whether it increases likelihood of future participation), and 2) help gauge the visitors’
knowledge (e.g. for improvement of activities).

Goal 2 Summary: We predict that 2,000 members of the public will visit the balloon. We aim to increase their
interest in neuroscience not only by displaying the super-sized brain, but also by engaging them in hands-on
neuroscience activities. Giveaway items will allow them to take away knowledge, educational supplies, and
reminders of their interest and involvement in neuroscience.
Goal 2 Assessment: Brain Balloon visitors who wish to spin the prize wheel will be required to complete a “Prize
Questionnaire” (survey) regarding how they liked the event and what they learned. These instruments will 1)
measure attitudes toward neuroscience, and 2) provide insight on the content acquired.

Alignment with the Society for Neuroscience Strategic Plan
This event fulfills several goals of the SfN’s Public Education Strategy by “improving public understanding
about health and basic scientific processes.” Specifically, Action Plan 1.a. calls SfN members to “…partner
with other professions/associations to develop materials ….and to support members engaging in pubic
education and outreach”. The Autism Tissue program was one of our community partners for last year’s
Brain Awareness Month activities and will be a primary sponsor of the Brain Balloon Project, promoting the
importance of neuroscience research and the necessity of brain tissue donations. We also hope to
collaborate with the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and our local Center for Behavioral Neuroscience.
Furthermore, the Brain Balloon Project will address Action Plan 2: “Increase involvement of SfN members
and chapters in Public Education and Outreach - Using the committee structure of SfN for guidance and
feedback, catalyze a shift in the professional culture of SfN members and chapters to more consistently
include and embrace public communication, outreach, and education about neuroscience.” Finally, by
disseminating findings from the program in the Brain Awareness Week report and journal publications, we
enable other neuroscientists to improve the quality and quantity of their public education programs.
Budget Justification
All budget figures are based on experience with similar activities (School Visits, Neuroscience Expo).

Budget: Total Brain Balloon Project Budget = $30, 000
The total costs for this event is estimated to be approximately $30,000. The biggest component of this budget is the
actual cost of delivering and setting up the Brain Balloon. This cost is being paid by the Autism Tissue Program of
Autism Speaks. Other matching funding is being provided locally and by local and national partners.

Requested Budget from SfN Chapter grant program = $2,000

Hands-On Neuroscience Activities: Permanent Materials                                            $1000
Funds are requested for the purchase of non-consumable materials for the educational booths, such as models,
measuring devices, props, etc. These materials will become part of our permanent Lending Library of neuroscience
teaching materials and will be used for future programs, including school visits and the annual Neuroscience Expo at
Zoo Atlanta. Thus, these materials will provide long-term improvement in our neuroscience educational effort
beyond the Brain Balloon Project.

Hands-On Neuroscience Activities: Consumable Materials                                             $500
Funds are requested for the purchase of supplies for the hands-on neuroscience activities. The funds would allow
volunteers to purchase materials which are consumed during the program, such as the materials needed to make
“incredible edible neurons”. These materials will allow balloon visitors to engage fully in hands-on activities.

The Brain Balloon Printing and Copying Costs                                                      $500
Funds are requested for designing, printing, and copying materials (e.g. handouts, booklets, and signs for hands-on
activities). Once developed, the materials will become part of the permanent local Lending Library of Neuroscience
materials and will be used for future educational programs. On the other hand, some materials will be specific to the
brain balloon and will allow us to take advantage of the unique opportunity offered by the brain balloon and the
annual meeting location in Atlanta.

Leveraging Funds: Funds provided in this grant will expand the Brain Balloon Project already supported by the
Autism Tissue Program. We hope that further support from SfN will spark even more enthusiasm among other
groups such as the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, our local Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, and other local
and national partners. A grant to the Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience will increase the ability of our
chapter members to participate effectively in public education.
