Sparking interest in neuroscience

March 22, 2011

Neuroscience studies the nervous system and involves collaboration with other fields such as chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, physics, and psychology. If you're a high school student who'd like to learn more or if you have an interest in teaching teens about neuroscience, we invite you to Brain Awareness Week.

Are you a Colorado State:

  • faculty,
  • postdoctoral fellow,
  • graduate student,
  • undergraduate student,
  • professional research associate,
  • research scientist, or
  • staff?

Do you have an interest in teaching neuroscience and research methods to teens?

Are you a high school biology, anatomy and physiology or psychology student who would like to learn more about neuroscience research?

Join us for the Brain Awareness Week at the local high schools.  (Those affiliated with neurobiology are also welcome to join us!)

As many as 800 attendees in previous years

In previous years, over 100 of us were involved in our Brain Awareness Week program at local high schools, where we spoke to over 700 biology, anatomy & physiology & psychology students about neuroscience research.

Small groups of high school students will "tour" our posters/exhibits with hands-on activities presented by our CSU volunteers. Come hone your presentation skills and add our event to your resume.

This year's Brain Awareness Week (Neuroscience Outreach Program) will be held at:

  • Fossil Ridge High School - March 22-25 (afternoons)
  • Rocky Mountain High school - April 8

Neuroscience Program orientation

Come to orientation & training for Brain Awareness week:

  • Monday, March 21 at 5 p.m.
  • Anatomy & Zoology Building, W1 (basement conference room)

Sign up and learn more about the Neuroscience program. This event is sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State and the Front Range Neurosciences Group
