Summer 2020 | High School Journal Club
This virtual journal club will introduce high school students to the scientific method, the peer-review process and the critical analysis of scholarly research articles. Students will work in small groups with science mentors (UCI neuroscience PhD students, undergraduate students and postdoctoral fellows) to learn how to read and critically analyze primary research articles in the neuroscience of learning and memory. Students will also have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with their mentors during weekly Q+A sessions where they will learn about life as a scientist, STEM career options and more. Students will earn a certificate after successful completion of the program.
This program is an outreach program of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory and is possible thanks to student volunteers from the CNLM Ambassador Program, Neuroscholar Program, and NuRhoPsi.
