I joined ALBA because :
After developing and working with BrainWaves (link attached), a program aimed at bringing hands on EEG research into the classroom, my passion for STEM outreach and equal opportunity in the foundational years in high school regardless of economic background has grown immensely. If we can cultivate interests in neuroscience at a young age, we may then finally be able to see a demographic change reflected in the professional world of research.
