Community Outreach

The Chicago Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience is dedicated to:

- providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information and ideas between Chicago-area neuroscientists

- offering educational resources and opportunities for teachers, students and the public at large through community outreach

The Chicago Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience is a big sponsor for Northwestern University Brain Awareness Outreach (NUBAO), each year NUBAO designed to bring scientists, teachers, students, and the public together to learn about and discuss the latest advances in Neuroscience research and education.

Our chapter collaborates with the Chicago Council on Science and Technology (C2ST) to bring neuroscience to the public.

We also sponsor the annual Chicago Brain Bee which gives area high schools students an opportunity to learn and demonstrate their knowledge about brain science. Contact the Chapter Secretary for more information.

These efforts are supported by volunteers and members. We also accept support in the form of contributions from the community.

If you would like to become a sustaining member and part of this ongoing mission, you can become a sponsor .
