BrainU: The Neuroscience Teacher Institute
A unique neuroscience program for K-12 science teachers, BrainU provides teachers with neuroscience training, materials, and staff support to bring brain science to their students. In these professional workshops, participants receive updates on the latest in neuroscience research -- discussion is complemented with hands-on activities and lab work. Teachers also receive curriculum materials to aid them in using neuroscience topics in support of state science education standards. The program was expanded in 2008 to include high school teachers.
