School Outreach

BRNZ researchers are passionate about neuroscience. Not only is it fascinating, but it can be a lot of fun – something we want to share with as many Kiwi kids possible.

In 2017, we launched the “Being Brainy” science programme. Being Brainy is a free teaching resource that gives primary and intermediate school teachers everything they need to take students on an exciting 8-week programme full of hands-on activities, experiments and inquiry about the human brain.

As well as teaching resources, we also offer teacher training to support teachers in using the resources, and school visits by a local neuroscientists for schools in or near any one of our main centres – Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch.
