CUNO en Español

Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach is launching a new initiative to bring science closer to the Spanish-speaking community in NYC. These initiatives range from free talks for all audiences, to workshops about the wonders of the brain across NYC schools.

The Ciencia en Español talk series will feature an all-Spanish presentation from a Columbia scientist, followed by a tour of the lab. These presentations are meant for everybody who wants to learn more about the mysteries of the brain! Whether you are a high school student or a senior citizen, you will leave these talks understanding a little bit more about what makes us human.
