The Project Team

Lori Flanagan-Cato created the Everyday Neuroscience course in 2016.    She received her B.A. (psychology) from Rutgers, her Ph.D.  (neuroscience) from Pitt, and her M.Ed. (education policy) from Penn.

Paul Robeson High School, located in West Philadelphia, provides students with rigorous and relevant educational experiences.

The Netter Center for Community Partnerships is Penn’s core facility to foster beneficial relationships between the university and West Philadelphia.

Peter Nwaoba, a Penn psychology major (CAS, 2019), completed an independent study project entitled “Does an ABCS neuroscience outreach program improve high school achievement?”

Students interested in working on this project as a research assistant, an independent study student, or a work study student, can email Professor Flanagan-Cato to express interest.  A commitment of two semesters, 10 hours per week, is required.
