On October 13th, the CSNE Student Leadership Council (SLC) hosted an open house for local students interested in neural engineering. Students learned about the CSNE's primary areas of research and some of the benefits of being involved with the CSNE, including funding, networking, mentoring and collaborating in affiliated research labs.
In this blog and by sharing our stories, we aim to ENGAGE students, researchers and the public, and ENABLE people who have disabilities.
With a large suitcase sitting in the trunk, a backpack full of snacks and entertainment for a 10-hour flight, and a van full of my loved ones, I headed toward the airport to embark on a 10 week exchange program, supported by a partnership between the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) and BrainLinks-BrainTools in Freiburg, Germany. The opportunity to gain research experience while also experiencing everything Europe had to offer was the perfect combination. To say the least, I couldn’t have asked for a better summer or a first trip to Europe.
Middle and high school teachers, Hannah Earhart, Phelana Pang, and Alexandra Pike, all took part in the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering’s (CSNE’s) Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program this summer at the University of Washington (UW). As part of the program, they designed innovative curriculum units covering neural engineering and neuroethics topics. They will be piloting these units with their students throughout the upcoming school year.
