Have you ever wondered what happens in the brain to cause dementia? Would your pupils love to meet and hear from a real scientist? You can help ignite your pupils’ curiosity and help them learn more about dementia research by taking part in our new campaign.
We’re asking secondary schools to spend a week braving it for a breakthrough by choosing a fundraising challenge to support Alzheimer’s Research UK to make breakthroughs possible in dementia research.
To celebrate your achievements and fundraising, we’re giving schools across the UK the chance to win an exclusive Alzheimer’s Research UK Discovery Roadshow visit! The winning school will be the one deemed to have been the bravest and most successful in their fundraising.
The Discovery Roadshow will be packed with engaging talks from an Alzheimer’s Research UK scientist, the chance to try A Walk Through Dementia with our virtual reality headsets, interactive workshops, assemblies and the exclusive chance to ask our scientists questions in order to find out more about the brain and dementia.
Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity for your school to have time with a dementia scientist. To sign your school up to take part in Brave it for a Breakthrough, download our Schools Pack and start planning your fundraising today!
