LAKE VIEW HIGH SCHOOL TO HOST 5TH ANNUAL NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY BRAIN AWARENESS OUTREACH

 

Let the Brains from Northwestern University Supercharge You and Your Family’s Brains – for Free! 

The brain scientists from Northwestern University Brain Awareness Outreach (NUBAO) will be holding their 5th Annual Brain Awareness Fair at Lake View High School on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 – another mind-blowing, experiment-packed opportunity for you and your kids to learn all about how the brain works! This free event fills up every year, so register now – you’ll control a Lego robot with brain-derived signals, experience and learn about the effect of bizarre optical illusions on your mind, take a look at your own brain waves, and much more.   

Activities are designed for kids of all ages, and your family will be learning one-on-one with enthusiastic Northwestern neuroscience graduate students, staff and faculty. Kids and teens must be accompanied by a parent or chaperone (so you’ll be learning right along!).  

Register today at http://www.nubrainawareness.com/#!20154-brain-awareness-fair/cbth – the event always fills up fast, so if you register, please be sure you can make it (there are other brains that want to get off the wait list!). Questions? Contact NUBAO at nubrainawareness@gmail.com.

Stay Safe Tonite and Always – Crime Reported by Channel 5 News Tuesday March 17

 

Chanel 5 reported people are knocking or ringing homeowners bells posing as Gas employees and then robbing people.  They said this is happening around Montrose and Clark.  Don’t open your door.  Please call 911, then your phone tree (neighbors on all four sided).  Be sure your porch is well let and that some interior lights are on in the evening so it appears that you are home.   Always keep home, vehicle and garage doors locked.  Lock windows or use ventilation locks.

Block Rep Training and Community Meeting Thursday 7 pm

Be the first on your block to get the GWCA Neighbors Watching sign. GWCA is not happy with two neighborhood break-ins in February (Greenview and Hutchinson) and the rate of crime we experienced in 2014. We hope you’ll volunteer on your block to meet new neighbors and help reduce neighborhood crime. Thursday, March 12, 7 pm, at the Rizal Center, 1332 West Irving Park (parking lot east of building), GWCA is having a Block Rep Meeting / Workshop. Find out how you can help. All questions welcome. We can do this with a little help from some neighbors.

Call 911 immediately to report crime or suspicious behavior. Describe suspects head to toe – concentrate on one distinct feature.
