Website and/or Calendar Links
Project NEURON (Novel Education for Understanding Research On Neuroscience) develops curriculum materials for middle and high school teachers to use in their science classrooms. Each unit addresses various science education standards, including the Next Generation Science Standards, within the context of neuroscience topics and research performed on the University of Illinois campus.
All completed materials, which have been classroom-tested and revised, are available on this website to teachers and educators for free. For teachers who wish to engage with our materials hands-on, Project NEURON also provides professional development opportunities through local workshops and national teaching conferences such as NSTA.
