  • To watch a video showing how a watermelon lands after falling to the ground with and without a helmet. You'll be surprised how big a difference it makes!
  • To an interesting questionnaire, thanks to which you will find out how you are doing with your knowledge of basic health literacy and the issue of head injuries - you will learn what you could improve or change. 
  • On the possibility of trying to fold an anatomical model of the brain into the correct shape.
  • And last but not least, learn more information about prevention, help and care after head injuries and other brain diseases.
