Project NEURON was an active NIH-SEPA project from 2009-2015. Although the project is no longer active, this web site is maintained to provide access to resources. For more information on related projects, please visit Impact on Science Education or e-mail us directly at Impactscied@illinois.edu.
Project NEURON's core mission is to develop middle and high school science curriculum materials that emphasize inquiry and active learning. Our units address science education standards, including the Next Generation Science Standards, within the context of biology research performed on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus.
These materials are designed in an iterative process, tested by a dedicated group of teachers, and aligned to current science research. We provide professional development opportunities and have a list of publications and workshops to disseminate our materials and support science teacher education.
