When & Where
Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach (CUNO)
Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach (CUNO) was started by a small group of Neuroscience graduate students in 2005, with the goal of taking science outside of the bench and into the community. CUNO achieves this through an ever expanding group of enthusiastic graduate students, who visit K-12 classrooms and host community events to increase scientific literacy and overall enthusiasm for scientific research.
