Making Neuroscience Fun is a community outreach program designed to teach children pre-K through 5th grade about the brain and the nervous system through age-appropriate interactive and fun presentations.
Students from the Undergraduate Neuroscience Program, Behavioral Biology Program, Nu Rho Psi (the JHU Undergraduate Neuroscience Society), and related departments go out to local schools and talk about various topics related to neuroscience. Topics include:
- How do I know the difference between the taste of chocolate and broccoli?
- How can I smell smoke that is far away?
- Do drugs really make you happy?
- Can I learn while I sleep?
- How do I see?
Making Neuroscience Fun is a free program underwritten by Johns Hopkins University.
