Science educators may be interested in BrainU, an educational neuroscience project for teachers directed by Janet Dubinsky, professor of neuroscience at the University of Minnesota. BrainU offers material for K-12 teachers to begin teaching about brain science and to aid their students' learning processes. Under the lessons tab, readers will find more than fifty well-developed lesson plans that are organized by grade level, lesson length, and learning situation (e.g. classroom, laboratory, or experiential station). At the top of the lesson page are links to BrainU's "Neuroscience Concepts and Activities" pages, which are grouped by grade level and intended as curriculum planning aids. Under the cool stuff tab, viewers will find links to curated collections of animations, images, and other visual materials available for classroom use. The Neuroscience tab leads readers to a collection of supplementary teaching materials, such as activities for review, a suggested reading list for teachers, and a glossary of neuroscience terms. BrainU offers a unique way for science teachers to enhance their curriculum and their students' learning.
