The NSU College of Psychology, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience is excited to offer a 2-week (9am - 12:30 pm) discovery-based Behavioral Neuroscience training program for high school students. We will host a poster session for parents on Aug. 4, 2017, where students will present work from their research projects. 

This year’s camp will focus on cognitive neuroscience. Students will participate in workshops with NSU faculty. The workshops will include demonstrations and discussions on:

Students will:

  • Receive a certificate upon completion
  • Work with professors making the transition from high school to college less stressful
  • Advance their skills in research, problem‐solving, and critical thinking
  • Present their own findings and receive feedback from professors and peers
  • Become better prepared to enter competitive pre-professional programs

The NSU 2017 Behavior Neuroscience Program is intended for high-school students who will be entering their junior or senior year in fall, 2017. The number of participants will be kept small (maximum 20) to allow for individualized attention and optimal use of equipment.

The Behavioral Neuroscience program fee is $200 (includes a $50 registration/processing fee). This covers tuition, supervision, program materials & equipment, daily mid-morning snack, and poster session.

Students who wish to apply must submit the following items no later than Monday, May 1, 2017. Registration will occur on a “rolling admissions” basis until we reach maximum capacity of 20 students.

Final payment of $150 is due by June 1, 2017.  Failure to make final payment will result in student being withdrawn from the program.
