NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY
BRAIN AWARENESS OUTREACH
WHO WE ARE

Northwestern University Brain Awareness Outreach (NUBAO) is a public outreach initiative founded in 2010 by Northwestern University's Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) students dedicated to educating, exciting, and inspiring the Chicago community about the brain. Through collaborations with public schools and science education programs in the Chicago area, NUBAO organizes a number of hands-on lectures, workshops, and open house-style events in an effort to teach a variety of neuroscience topics to students of all ages and their families. The NUBAO volunteer base consists of a diverse group of mostly graduate students, in addition to undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and research staff from numerous departments and scientific disciplines at Northwestern. 

LATEST NEWS

Unfortunately, given the pandemic and other recent events, NUBAO had to cancel its annual Brain Awareness Fair for 2020. We are, however, continually keeping abreast of government and university advisories whilst planning ahead for activities in the upcoming academic year. We have many exciting developments ahead. So stay tuned and most of all -- keep safe! 

In the meantime, NUBAO is kicking off the academic year with a COVID-19 Fundraiser. Please consider donating to our COVID-19 fundraising event to support kids going back to Chicago Public Schools. During these difficult times, let us band together to help kids and families in need.

No amount is too small!
