Offer your students DIY Neuroscience after training with our partners at Backyard Brains!  Help us launch their latest offering of hands-on neuroscience sponsored by the National Institute of Health.

Backyard Brains is excited to offer educators from K-12 the learning tools and resources they need to introduce students to the fundamentals of neuroscience! Participants will be introduced to a NGSS-aligned phenomenon neuroscience curriculum. Participants will first engage in an introductory lesson on reaction time, create their own model of the nervous system, and then explore the Neuron Spikerbox, which allows you to record living neurons and see Action Potentials on student smartphones or laptops.

Workshop Overview

These workshops represent the next steps in the underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) design and building progress. Square One’s intent is to provide a resource for teachers who wish to integrate a higher degree of technology and sophistication into their ROV program. Embracing the digital world requires a different thought process. Once the digital foundation is laid, a whole new avenue of motor control, communication and data collection is available for the ROV builder.

These workshops should be taken sequentially.
