Project NEURON was an active NIH-SEPA project from 2009 to 2015. This website has been archived to provide access to resources and materials. For updates and more information on related projects, please visit ImpactSciEd or e-mail us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project NEURON's core mission was to develop middle and high school science curriculum materials that emphasized inquiry and active learning. Our units address science education standards, including the Next Generation Science Standards, within the context of biology research performed on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus.
The curriculum materials were designed in an iterative process, tested by a dedicated group of teachers, and aligned to current science research. We provided professional development opportunities and disseminated our materials through publications and workshops at national conferences.
