We normally host a variety of hands-on brain science programs in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, located at 609 W 129th St. Designed with feedback from the community, these programs harness the groundbreaking research of the Institute in creative ways for school children, families, after-school groups and adults. Please see below for a list of our current on-site programs.

Much of our on-site programming has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit our main Engage page for a list of online programming, as well as virtual resources for students, families and adults.
