The Ask, Listen, Learn underage drinking prevention program teaches
kids what the brain does, what alcohol does to it, and what underage
drinking does to them!
In this activity, students explore the differences
between short-term memory and long-term memory and learn the role
that the brain’s hippocampus plays in processing both types of memories.
They also explore how alcohol affects the storage and retrieval of these
memories as they learn about the effects of underage drinking on the
developing brain. Students then discuss various scenarios in which
