HOW TO PARTICIPATE

How you choose to celebrate BRAD is up to you! Your celebration can be small (involving a single class or department), larger (involving the entire institution, company, and the general public), or anything in between. Here are example activities that may be part of your BRAD event:

  • Table with informational handouts, freebies, posters, and a support banner for participants to sign

  • Seminar on topics related to biomedical research and laboratory animal care/medicine

  • Rounds and case presentations related to laboratory animal care/medicine

  • Interactive activities such as games, trivia, jeopardy, and a scavenger hunt – often with prizes! See the “Games & Activities” section in the BRAD Toolkit for more ideas! 

  • Tour of research facilities and/or vivarium

 

Have other ideas? Go for it and share them with us! We are always looking for new ideas to incorporate into BRAD. Make the event your own and have fun doing it!
