Cerebral Science Investigators
Cerebral Science Investigators was initiated by Maggie Blattner ('07) who carried out neuroscience activities with children. The program was expanded to include any and all other science disciplines like biology, chemistry, geology and astronomy and activities are designed to encourage making neural connections as kids think about the meaning of each activity and how they are connected. The program is designed for children K-5 and is led by Wellesley College students.
