As part of the kick-off to the International Senior Research Fellowship, the fellows attended Soapbox Science Munich and the Munich Science Slam presentation skills workshop to begin immersing themselves in the scientific community in Germany and learn strategies to become better science communicators.(more…)
After ten years pushing the borders of the NeuroRevolution, and five running Backyard Brains Summer Internships, we are sending our bravest Summer Fellowship Seniors to a continent far, far away! In this unknown (to them) land, adventures and challenges are waiting that will demand courage, stamina, and tenacity. We’ve set up our first camp in Monacum (Germania) to prepare our warriors to become the scientists of the future. Under the guidance of the hirnkastl.science wizards, they will perfect their academic abilities in order to fine-tune their continuing BYB projects!(more…)
Feat. DIY Neurosci Research Projects proposed, projected, poster-ed, and presented by Middle School students!
Anastasiya was one of BYB’s 2018 Summer Fellows (of jellyfish fame), and now she has written back to us about the neuroscience outreach she has been doing in the Cincinnati area! One of the reasons we changed our summer program’s name from internship to fellowship is due to instances like this, where the students we bring in continue to work with us and connect us to the community at large, years after they leave Ann Arbor. Thank you for spreading the Good Word, Ana!
