We recognize the importance of communicating about our scientic work to the general public and we enjoy doing so. Recently, we received funding from the Pilot fund Science communication by scientists: Appreciated! (with members of Change Leiden) to engage children and adolescents in science communication about brain development.
We also contribute to articles (and other media) for the general public. A selection of articles is presented below:
- Online article for educators about translating neuroscientific findings to the classroom (in Dutch)
- Videoclip about ‘braintraining’ for BOLD blog (collaboration with Jacobs Foundation, science communicators from Catta, and animators from Kurzgesagt)
- Article for Frontiers for Young Minds special issue: Want to Train Your Brain? Read This Article!
- Online article for Linda.nl about the importance of reading during adolescence (in Dutch)
- Short commentary for Quest Magazine about the ‘math gyrus’ (wiskundeknobbel; in Dutch)
- Article in Ouders van Nu school special
Furthermore, we provide lectures at schools and other public places. If you are interested in a lecture at your school, please contact us.
