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. Check out some of the awesome projects students have been working on.
Many students and parents have contacted us asking if we work closely with students and give them the support they need to complete challenging neuroscience based projects. We inform them that our free online experiments, resources and a friendly approach to customer communication combines to make a positive learning environment. All students using our gear are important to us and we put in the extra effort to ensure they 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.
Still have questions? Give us a call or send us an email, we would be happy to answer any questions you have and go into greater detail about our products, approach and mission. Join us today in the NeuroRevolution!

Top Experiments For Students
Taken from our Experiments Page
Getting Started with the SpikerBox
In this module, you will listen to action potentials and view "spikes" in real time. An excellent starting point for your SpikerBox.
Getting Started with the Electromyogram (EMG) SpikerBox
You can listen to the electrical impulses of muscles at rest and during contraction. An excellent starting point for your EMG SpikerBox.
Getting Started with the EMG SpikerShield
You've seen your muscles' electrical activity and now it is time to harness it! In this lab you will use your EMG SpikerShield with an Arduino to control electronic devices with your muscles.
