Outreach Program

Neuroscience Department Outreach Program

The Neuroscience Department faculty and students partner together to share our passion for neuroscience with younger students in the Greater Boston Area. We enjoy visiting community schools and facilitating group visits to Wellesley. One of our favorite outreach programs is a sheep brain dissection, a hands-on exploration of the brain to introduce and excite students for neuroscience.


COVID-19 Pandemic has impacted the program. We hope to engage in more outreach programming in 2022-2023 academic year.
