CUNO grew out of a small group of Columbia students who began visiting local New York City classrooms in 2005, teaching short workshops about the brain in the spirit of Brain Awareness Week.
We have greatly expanded in the last few years and are always looking for new volunteers and new classes to visit, so please contact us for more information or if you would like to help out.
CUNO currently focuses on 6 main domains:
- Single-visit classroom workshops
- Multi-visit classroom teaching in collaboration with Citizen Schools
- New York City Brain Bee co-hosting and competitor training
- Curriculum development
- The Brain Expo
- Late Night Science
