The Axon Project

Our Mission:


We strive to bridge the gap between neuroscience and high school students by providing information, mentorship, and resources to foster passion for the brain and its underlying mechanisms.

Check out our current Spotlight Series on the intersection of neuroscience and the humanities here.


Our Mission

As modern neuroscience continues to grow and shed light upon the underlying mechanisms of human thought and behavior, a new generation of minds cultivating this exciting field is also emerging. Yet the knowledge and existing data are not as accessible nor understandable to younger generations seeking to learn more about the brain. At The Axon Project, we strive to serve as axons making information accessible for students interested in neuroscience.
