This week’s Cameo Blog Post is from Juliana B.! Juliana’s recap of our week includes a Neurotransmitter Lab (gone wrong…) and info about our current design thinking project on concussions in youth sports – she has a fantastic idea!  Please check out her overview of our class last week and feel free to comment on her website!
