Can you remember what it what like when you first learned about the wonders of the brain and the exciting field of neuroscience? Did you also wish for more to learn about the brain during your high school years? Now you have the chance to deliver precisely that to the next generation of high school students, and help in training future neuroscientists!

We would like to invite early stage researchers, to take this opportunity to engage with the general public about neuroscience and the importance of your projects during the First Dutch Brain Olympiad on Saturday, March 16th(during Brain Awareness Week) at the Donders Institute, Nijmegen. Specifically, we would like you to prepare a layperson poster (in Dutch or English) or bring interesting methods or demo’s to the Brain Olympiad Expo.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Learn to organise a community science outreach event
  • Prepare to share your exciting research with the public
  • Transfer your enthusiasm about science to high school kids
  • Network with representatives of government, NGOs, academia and industry
