Educating our next generation

Supporting our next generation of brain researchers and sparking their desire to discover how the brain functions is at the heart of our Education Program.

We bring together neuroscientists and students, engaging them in active learning and providing resources with the latest information on how the brain functions.

We encourage primary school students to explore the brain through art with our annual creative art competition and we also take part in Brain Awareness Week each March.

Secondary students are introduced to brain research through the Australian & New Zealand Brain Bee Challenge, with the aim of sparking their interest and encouraging them to pursue a career in neuroscience.

For Early Career Researchers (ECRs), including PhD students, we offer professional support, development and mentoring. Supporting new brain researchers is critical for retaining their scientific talents and ensuring future excellence in Australian brain research.
