Atlanta is home to great Neuroscience Research and Public Education programs from many participating institutions. The goal of the Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience (ACSfN) is to provide a forum for bringing together these resources.

The ACSfN sponsors Brain Awareness Programs in Atlanta. Teachers can request a scientist to visit their classroom. ACSFN Participating Institutions maintain a variety of Neuroscience Teaching Materials including Brains that may be used in outreach activities.


Information for Volunteers

Are you an undergrad, graduate student, post-doc or faculty member at an Atlanta area college or university? Are you interested in giving local K-12 students a unique opportunity to learn about neuroscience from someone who studies it firsthand? Then join our Brain Awareness campaign! Last year, we reached 5039 kids by sending our volunteers into local classrooms, where they presented lessons on the neuroscience topics they study every day in the lab. Follow the steps below to become a part of our nationally recognized Brain Awareness campaign.
