Behavioral Neuroscience Students Host Outreach Workshop at Library

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Callen Hyland, PhD and behavioral neuroscience students hosted a hands-on workshop at the La Jolla Library this past month. Sophomore, Catherine Tan, put together the hands-on activity for the workshop and gave the presentation. Senior, Vee Rodriquez, and La Jolla Highschool student, Lauren Nitahara, assisted with the workshop. A group of children ages 8-14 attended the Hydra-Mania workshop to perform hands-on experiments with Hydra. Hydra is a freshwater relative of jellyfish famous for its regenerative abilities. Children were able to look at hydra under a microscope to investigate it's biology. They also perform experiments and learned about its role in the natural environment. The workshop introduced cutting-edge biomedical research aimed at understanding how Hydra regenerates its nervous system.
