Neuroscience Camp LogoAbout NeuroCamp

The NeuroCamp (Neuroscience Camp) summer program is an instructional course for introducing basic neuroscience (and related experiments, techniques, and analytical tools) to select high school students.

Download/Access NeuroCamp Files

Students and Faculty can download many of the related files for free.

(1)  Take the Student Pre-Test:  If you are a student and are about to begin the NeuroCamp summer program, please take our Pre-Test [NOTE: this will NOT affect your grade].  We are asking you to participate in a study on the efficacy of the program taught by your instructor(s).  This study will help us to revise this program to make it more effective and to develop new teaching modules in the future so that they are educationally effective, easy to understand, and successfully meeting student needs.  Not only will your participation help us produce a better program, but it may also help your understanding of the materials.

--> We ask that you take a short Pre-Test BEFORE the materials are presented (at the beginning of the program) and also take an idential Post-Test AFTER the program has ended.  These little quizzes will help us gauge your gains from this module.  The quiz can be taken over the web and should take about 10 minutes.  When you take the tests online, please use the SAME, real email address each time, as we will need them for tracking data.

-->  Since we are going to ask you to take the quiz as well as fill out an opinion questionnaire after the unit is completed, we request that you give us your email address so that we may send you one, and ONLY one, reminder email.  We will NOT be sending you any further emails, nor will we submit your email address to any outside sources.  [Note: providing you email address is voluntary, as is your participation in this study (see below).]

-->  Participation in this study is completely voluntary.  You are not required to participate to receive or use the materials included in this module.

(6)  Take the Student Post-Test:  If you are a student and have completed the NeuroCamp summer program, please provide us with your level of scientific knowledge coming out of the module by taking the following Post-Test (regardless of what Pre-Test you took, Option A or Option B, you will take the same Post-Test as everyone else).

(7)  Fill out the Student Program Evaluation:  If you are a student and have completed the NeuroCamp summer program, please provide us with basic feedback on the materials used in this module by filling out the multiple choice Program Evaluation.
