Creating novel brain science curricula for the classroom

The Teacher Council of Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute and BioBus, Inc. is a group of high school teachers who are committed to teaching brain science in their classroom. Council members advised and supported the creation of novel brain science education materials integrating authentic scientific discoveries with hands-on activities.

During summer and fall of 2018 the Teacher Council collaborated on the shaping, vetting and testing of an enquiry-driven brain science curriculum. Teachers will participate in advisory workshops and pilot materials in their classroom. The outcome of their efforts were new scientifically-vetted, customized and hands-on educational materials that introduce students to the wonders of the brain.
