This year National Epilepsy Week runs from 20-26th May. The focus this year is on Seizure First Aid. After winning the 2017 award from “I am a scientist, get me out of here”, the Psychology department at the Epilepsy Society have produced an interactive assembly for Key Stage 2.
This free resources explores some exciting facts about the brain, what causes a seizure and how to care for someone who is having a convulsive seizure. This interactive Assembly lasts around 20 minutes.
We are also running a nationwide poster competition, please find details of this in the resource. The winning pupil will receive a £25 Voucher for themselves and £100 for their school’s science department! Good luck, we look forward to seeing your entries!
