Neuroscience Summer Camp (Palo Alto)
We've now opened registration for our Neuroscience Bootcamp, our exciting annual summer program designed to engage high-school and middle-school students in learning about fascinating discoveries related to the human brain as well as career discussions with other physicians and scientists from Stanford.
This program is excellent for students interested in health-related fields such as medicine and nursing as well as the biological sciences and scientific research in general.
The Neuroscience Bootcamp is being held in June on M-F 4:30-6:00pm on the Stanford campus. It is broken up into three weekly sessions, including Week 1: Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience (June 11-15), Week 2: Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience (June 18-22), and Week 3: Brain Scans and Technology (June 25-29). For each of these weeks, we will have a range of activities, including real human and animal brain specimens, engaging anatomical models, hands-on group labs, and visits to biomedical laboratories located on the Stanford campus.
- Explore the wonders of the human brain by investigating the molecules & cells that compose it, the cognition & behavior it generates, and the brain scans and technology used to examine it.
- Learn from outstanding educator-scientists who share their passion for these subject areas with engaging classroom activities ranging from virtual reality views to real anatomical specimens.
- Visit world-class biomedical labs on the Stanford campus to see how scientists are using cutting-edge technology to uncover the scientific mysteries of the brain and develop biomedical treatments for the diseases that afflict it.
