High School Site Visits
The Brain Research Institute designs and sponsors several programs aimed at brining UCLA educational neuroscience resources into high school classrooms. These programs include:
Drug Abuse and Society
Drug Abuse and Society is a special class that trains UCLA senior neuroscience students to present accurate, knowledgeable, and age-appropriate lectures on specific legal and illegal drugs of abuse to high school students. UCLA students and their instructors visit traditionally underserved high schools to provide both a scientific and policy based education with the aim of both inspiring teenagers who may be interested in a career in addiction and mental health research, and educating teens on the risks of drug use.
Project Brainstorm is a class offerred to upper division neuroscience undergraduate students at UCLA. In this class, students prepare lessons on various neuroscience topics, then travel to K-12 classrooms in the Los Angeles area to present their lessons and a series of hands-on activities demonstrating brain anatomy, organization, and function. NS 192 is offered Winter and Spring quarters to UCLA students. For registration information, please contact email@example.com.
