The Synapse Project: Inspiring the Future of Neuroscience
High school student Grace Greenwald connects her peers with world class neuroscientists and mentorship.

At the age of 15, Grace came up against a lack of resources to help high school students explore the field of neuroscience. Undaunted, she designed her own neuroscience curriculum and founded The Synapse Project, a virtual learning platform that connects professionals in brain research to high school students, especially young women, offering the next generation of neuroscientists a head start through mentorship, classes, and lab experience.
