Project Brainstorm is a neuroscience education outreach class that brings real human brains and hands-on neuroscience presentations to predominantly low income (Title 1) schools in Los Angeles. Led by graduate students through UCLA's Brain Research Institute (BRI), we train undergraduate students in science lesson planning and organize classroom visits to elementary, middle, and high schools in winter and spring quarters. Project Brainstorm also leads Brain Awareness Week, which has gained a strong reputation throughout LAUSD and hosts over 300 K-12 students from diverse backgrounds each year. During Brain Awareness Week, we bring 60 students to UCLA each day for a fun-filled day of brain activities, tours of real working neuroscience labs, campus tours, and a career panel.
