Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Saturday Science has gone virtual! We’re bringing the students in your life brand-new activities and the chance to learn neuroscience from real scientists.
Check out our video guides below for some fun, easy-to-do neuroscience activities, and check out our downloadable activity guides. All of our activities can be done with items you can easily find at home!

Saturday Science is brought to you by the Zuckerman Institute, BioBus, Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach and Columbia Neuroscience Society with generous sponsorship from Apple Bank and the Dana Foundation’s Brain Awareness Week Outreach Grants Program.
Can’t make it to our live Zoom event? You can also download both English and Spanish instructions for independent learning.
