Chancellor’s Day Professional Development


Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute offers CTLE eligible professional development opportunities for NYC high school STEM teachers on Chancellor’s Day. Although topics vary each year, BrainSTEM In Action allows teachers to see research spaces firsthand, participate in hands-on demos, discuss cutting-edge neuroscience research, and tailor lesson plans to their own classroom. 

The topic of our 2022 Chancellor’s day workshop is “Neuroscience of Anxiety: STEM learning to promote social-emotional growth.” Applications for 2022 have closed. Please check back in April 2023 for the topic of our next BrainSTEM In Action 2023 Chancellor’s Day workshop and for application details.
