Dr. Greg Gage is a neuroscientist, biomedical engineer, co-founder of Backyard Brains, and TED Fellow. He spent many years as an electrical engineer designing retail systems before returning to grad school to pursue his passion for neuroscience. We talked about his exciting project to create a community of amateur neuroscientists, his plan to teach a generation of kids to think like a scientist and the complexity of the brain in this fun and fascinating conversation. I’m proud to feature Backyard Brains neuroscience kits in our online Brain and Learning Shop. These kits are a must-have for teachers and a fun idea for anyone who wants to experience the power of neuroscience up close!
