NUBAO Teachers Workshop 2019

Every year, Northwestern University Brain Awareness Outreach (NUBAO) in partnership with Chicago SfN hosts a professional development workshop for Chicago area science educators aimed at exposing these educators to the exciting field of neuroscience research, and to demonstrate how neuroscience topics can be introduced into the classroom through engaging, hands-on activities. NUBAO volunteers present demos and lesson plans featuring topics such as Neuranatomy, Brain Injury and Safety, Sensorimotor Neurophysiology, Motor Adaptation, and Learning and Memory.
