Congratulations to UW Bioengineering’s Eric Chudler, and his team at the University of Washington on winning a 2023 Northwest Regional Emmy® Award  for the program, “BrainWorks – Vision and the Brain.”  BrainWorks takes viewers on a journey inside the human brain and aims to educate children about the wonders of neuroscience. The program won an Emmy® in 2017 for “BrainWorks: Exercise and the Brain” in the Science and Health – Program/Special category. Winners were announced at the 60th Anniversary Gala on June 3.

The episode was one of four selections for the Children/Youth/Teens award and introduces viewers to the anatomy of the eye, how color vision works, how vision is tested in the clinic and how vision may be restored with a “brain-computer interface.”  Funding for the episode was provided by the Dana Foundation and the Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology (DO-IT) program. The show was produced by UWVideo.
