Brain Boost

Share something interesting you discovered or learned on your trip in a 30 second reel or TikTok style video. This could be something educational you did or something you saw worth sharing about. We’d love to see your face, but if you’re camera shy, this can be done by using a voice-over accompanied by footage of the moment.
