Founded in 2010 as part of the Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience PhD Program, NUBAO consists of a diverse group of mostly graduate students, in addition to several undergraduate students, post-doctorate fellows, faculty, and research staff from various departments and scientific disciplines at Northwestern University. They are always looking for enthusiastic science-minded volunteers!

Hosted in partnership with Sullivan High School, the annual Brain Awareness Fair is NUBAO's biggest event. Over 20 exciting demonstrations and fun, hands-on activities that demonstrate how the brain works. Kids and teens learn with parents or chaperones about neuroscience with activities geared toward all ages.
