CEREBROedu: Una Ventana al Cerebro/ BRAINedu: A Window into the Brain is a national Spanish/English informal education project providing culturally competent programming and media resources about the brain’s structure and function to Hispanic middle school students and their families. The project will directly reach 72 Hispanic-serving informal STEM educators and public health professionals, and 200 children and 400 parents in underserved urban, suburban and rural communities nationwide.

Cerebroedu will empower informal STEM educators to provide culturally responsive hands-on activities about the brain's structure and function to Latinx youth and families; increase knowledge of diverse neuroscience-related career options and encourage Latinx youth to consider them as viable and exciting careers paths; and increase awareness about brain illnesses (Alzheimer's disease, depression, and epilepsy) building mental health awareness, thus increasing help-seeking behavior.
