Summer Workshop for Teachers

A one-week workshop that combines lectures and related hands-on laboratory courses and culminates in a session on science curriculum development for grades 8-12.

I decided to participate in the summer workshop because I wanted to learn about cutting edge topics within the realms of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and biomechanics. As I’d hoped, the speakers on neuroscience and fMRI imaging were amazing, and I’ve since incorporated more current research and practices — including the neuroplasticity vision goggle lab and various dissection techniques —  into my anatomy and physiology classes. Being able to share the research being conducted at MIT with students is invaluable!
