Introducing girls to STEM careers via #IntroduceAGirlToEngineeringDay will share the story of Indrani Das a 17 year old from New Jersey who found ways to revert neurons from the confusion caused during a brain accident.

Women and girls will be building neurons and astrocytes while viewing a video of Indrani Das talk about her research on neurons. i discovered #NeuralKnitworks created by Textile Artist, Pat Pillai of Australia last year in search of supporting brain health. the science behind #NeuralKnitworks is that when we build neurons and astrocytes, our own neurons and astrocytes get to see what they look like and create stronger connections. The research that #IndraniDas is doing with neurons helps show the importance of understanding neurons, astrocytes and capillaries in ours and others brain. This is a #EducationalFamilyFunActivity that produces instant happy juice and understanding for what is working in our brains. Our women and girls could some day add to #IndraniDas research or conduct other research. #ExposureIsKey #HappyWeaving #HappyKnitter
