Youth Neuroscience Symposium – Foothills Campus – University of Calgary

My colleagues and I are undergraduate students preparing a youth neuroscience symposium, Synapse. This symposium is designed for grade 11 and 12 students to be able to get insight into the field of neuroscience. It will be held at the University of Calgary Foothills Campus at no cost on May 13th, 2017.

There will be two speakers, both of whom are prominent in neuroscience, coming to speak about their research and answer any questions students may have. In addition, there will be approximately 10 interactive demos for the students to experience throughout the day. These demos will include a variety of information about neuroscience such as: how to get into research, a brain matching game with real preserved brains, a sensation and perception phantom limb activity, and a neuroanatomy crash course. In addition, there will be undergraduate students from the neuroscience program at the University of Calgary who will be more than happy to answer any questions students have. We are very excited to introduce students to the exciting world of neuroscience!

Please let us know if this is a possibility! Feel free to contact us for any further information, details or if you have any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Natalya Patrick

Vice-President and Co-Founder of Synapse
