BrainStation is an interactive, scientific, student-development workshop designed to bring the study of the brain to students in elementary school. BrainStation was developed in Providence, RI in 2016 to provide mentorship to elementary school students in the local community while communicating the significance and potential of the brain.
BrainStation is a nonprofit organization providing free introductory brain science lessons to elementary school students in New England. The program forms partnerships with public, private, and charter schools to inform students about brain science, mental illness, and neurological disorders. BrainStation is supported by volunteer medical students, graduate students, and scientists who have a passion for communicating the importance of the neurosciences.
BrainStation’s mission is to increase awareness of the brain systematically by educating children during the earliest years of elementary school. The program's curriculum incorporates and complements the educational objectives developed by The Next Generation Science Standards. Teaching children about the brain during their early development will help them to understand how the brain functions properly and will help to reduce stigmas and biases associated with mental illness and neurological disorders.
