Bay Area Science Festival 

BASF's Discovery Day at Oracle Park took place on April 24, 2022, reaching 25,000+ attendees from the Bay Area community to enjoy hands-on exhibits presented by scientists and STEM professionals. The NeuroZone was a tremendous success, thanks to the organizational efforts of Alexander Ehrenberg. The BASF will take a break in 2023 but will return in 2024. Sign up for their newsletter to learn about other STEM opportunities in the Bay Area.

Brain Camp

This outstanding program completed its 6th year in 2022. The week-long intensive program introduces local high school students to careers in neuroscience. We hosted high school students from 21 different high schools across San Francisco and the East Bay. 

UCSF's Science & Health Education Partnership (SEP)

SEP has several excellent programs that our faculty have participated in, such as the summer Internship Program and the fall Bay Area Science Festival. 

Dr. Jeanne Paz and Dr. Scott Zamvil have hosted interns through the Internship Program. 

Each program has a different start date and other parameters. Read more on the SEP website to find a program that works for you.
