NIH to fund development of K-12 neuroscience education programs
Date:9/27/2011

ate and disseminate new science and health teaching resources for elementary school audiences nationwide, focused on emerging areas in neuroscience, with connections to reading/language arts.

Eric Chudler, Ph.D., University of Washington, Seattle
Project: Sowing the Seeds of Neuroscience
This project will give middle school students an opportunity to study how chemicals in plants and herbs, such as Gingko biloba or the caffeine in tea leaves, affect health and behavior. These investigations aim to improve student understanding about neuroscience and encourage them to pursue careers in biomedical sciences.

Michael Kavanaugh, Ph.D., University of Montana, Missoula
Project: The Big Sky Brain Project
The University of Montana will collaborate with the Exploratorium in San Francisco to create a neuroscience learning center called the Brainzone, which will feature four exhibits, a computer lab, and a working laboratory. This exhibit will also be used in a mobile program that brings hands-on science education projects to isolated, underserved, rural and tribal schools.

"These innovative NIH-funded awards enable teams of researchers and educators to engage students in the creativity and excitement of cutting-edge research in human health and disease," said NCRR Director Barbara M. Alving, M.D.
