Introduction to Neuroscience: Virtual Brain Fair Series

March 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Brain Bunch plans to host a series of virtual hour-long neuroscience outreach sessions across New Jersey during NJ STEM Month.

Within these programs, our organization will work with local libraries and schools in the regions to conduct virtual programs with students between Grades 2-8 for free. Institutions with which sessions have been planned/are in planning phase include Elizabeth Public Library, Montvale Public Library, North Brunswick Public Library, Metuchen Public Library, Robert Fulton Elementary School, and more. We will also be hosting a station at the NJ Makers Day event in Piscataway Public Library.

The individual programs will be split into 4 modules (brain anatomy, neurons, magic/optical illusions, and awareness), each of which will start with a 5 minute lecture followed by a 10 minute group-based activity, covering interesting topics like brain circuits or tissue histology.
