Adlai E. Stevenson High School Prevention Team rolled out its “Your Brain--Gray Matters” information campaign for students the week of January 22nd and it was a great success with over 1,600 downloads !
The campaign's intention was/is to help improve students’ knowledge about the brain, its development during the teen years, and how drugs and alcohol can impair development.
As part of the campaign, the team has created a “Your Brain--Gray Matters” app for students available for iPhone and iPad through the App Store. The app features a game called Brain Blitz, in which students can test their knowledge about the effects of making healthy choices.
