Middle school students get brainy

You know it's going to be a good week when Monday morning starts with a bucket of whole human brains. I got to attend Brain Day, in which Stanford graduate students take a collection of human brains as well as a zoo full of animal brains into local middle schools to give students a lesson in biology they won't soon forget. I describe the kids' excitement in a story today, but this video by my colleague Kurt Hickman says it all.
