Baltimore Brain Connect Outreach Program

The Baltimore Brain Connect is a collaborative set of programming for this year's Brain Awareness Week. We have recently finalized the details of this line of programming and would like to invite all neuroscientists to participate where they are able.


The first phase of the Brain Connect is classroom visits. We will be visiting schools on March 7 and between March 12 and March 14. In the classroom, we will be teaching students neuroscience basics and that neurons in happy/healthy bodies work better than neurons in unhealthy bodies. Finally, we'll finish the lesson with a discussion of how to get our neurons to work better (e.g., guided meditation and healthy habits). If you are interested in leading or participating in the classroom, you must attend a training session on March 6 or March 8 at 6:00 PM (to be held in Wood Basic Science Building Room 811 at the Hopkins School of Medicine). 


Additionally, our final showcase will be held on Sunday, March 18th at the Port Discovery Atrium from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. We will need volunteers to help set up prior to, lead demonstrations during, and clean up after the event.

We hope to have as many neuroscientists to participate as possible to make this event educational and fun for Baltimoreans of all ages. For any questions, please contact Kevin Monk at
