Students and Parents
Backyard Brains is excited to offer the first affordable neuroscience solution for K-12 Science Fair and school projects! Many students have found success working with us and using our neuroscience recording equipment for their very own projects.
Many students and parents have contact us asking them for help and support as they tackle challenging neuroscience based projects. Our free online experiments, resources, and a friendly customer communication combines to help those who reach out to us as we ensure a positive learning environment. All students using our gear are important to us, and we put in the extra effort to help them find success and have fun learning about the brain.
We are a small group of neuroscientists and engineers who likes to work closely with our customers. We find this creates the best opportunity for students to maximize their project's potential. Neuroscience is hard and we understand that; every step of the way we are there to offer our support as professional scientists. Our main goal is to change the way science is taught. We want to get students excited and show them how real science is performed, thus giving them the tools to succeed in the future.
