Neuroscience Saturday is designed to immerse students in cutting-edge brain research, while introducing them to modern science in a way that's accessible, fun, and inspirational. Featuring hands-on activities and interaction with scientists from both Scripps Florida and the new Max Planck Florida Institute, this all-day workshop explores brain function and dysfunction. How do we learn and form memories? How is the brain structured? How does addiction affect your brain and your behavior?
The curriculum is designed for students in grades nine and ten. Neuroscience Saturday takes place at the Scripps Florida research facility in Jupiter and runs from 10 a.m. until approximately 3:30 p.m. Lunch is provided. Due to limited space, participation is limited to 20 students from each school. Teachers and parents are welcome to attend.
Registration for Neuroscience Saturday is open to classroom science teachers from Palm Beach County Title I high schools only. As with all Education Outreach programs offered by Scripps Florida, Neuroscience Saturday is presented free of charge. In addition, we are pleased to be able to offer complimentary bus transportation to and from Scripps Florida for all participating schools. (Transportation arranged through Palm Beach County School District.)
