        Brain Boost: This week we are going to share ideas on how to make your brain stronger so that it will serve you better throughout your life! Did you know that your brain has a growth spurt that lasts into your mid-20s? The brain follows a simple principle of "use it or lose it." The brain connections that teens use again and again become stronger and the connections that are not used just fade away.
