"Brain Camp is a free, highly selective, one-week residential summer experience for high school students interested in neuroscience research. Students at Brain Camp live in on campus at Muhlenberg College; attend hands-on workshops that explore brain anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and consciousness, and pioneer collaborative research projects with neuroscience faculty. Brain Camp is supported by a generous annual gift from the Sentience Foundation."
Each day at Brain Camp includes:
- Morning sessions that demonstrate hot topics in neuroscience through hands-on activities. Past activities have included: da Vinci and Brain Anatomy, What's Really Happening on Fear Factor?, and This is Your Brain on Drugs.
- Afternoon research projects that let students design their own experiments. Projects are directed by faculty from the biology, neuroscience, and psychology departments at Muhlenberg College.
- Evening social activities including Dorney Park, outdoor movies, and more!
