Neuroscience Outreach Program
Neurosciences graduate students founded and organized the Neuroscience Outreach Program to share our knowledge of the brain and neuroscience research with San Diego students and community members.
Throughout the year, graduate student volunteers share their enthusiasm for neuroscience by teaching introductory, hands-on activities in classrooms and at various events. Student directors are in charge of arranging outreach events in the greater San Diego area.
Student volunteers present our teaching modules: Sheep’s Brain Dissection and Comparative Neuroanatomy. These modules can be adapted to suit a variety of ages and have been taught at all grade levels, including Biosciences Day at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Musuem in Balboa Park and Better Education for Women in Science and Engineering (BEWISE) workshops at the Salk Institute for Biological Research.
Educators, schedule an event at your school.
