Making Brain Science Accessible

Greg Gage (and lab partner Tim Marzullo) started Backyard Brains in order to design affordable equipment to help students learn and participate in neuroscientific discovery.

I had the privilege of meeting their assorted band of science geeks and committed educators at this year's NSTA conference, and was connected by electrodes to a skeptical and wary teacher in exactly the way they demonstrate in this TED talk demonstration. If they are exhibiting at a conference you attend, make sure you stop by for a fun and fascinating hands-on learning experience.
