Ambassadors will work to construct webinars with their local libraries and schools to teach elementary school students about the brain. They will lead the organization of these events after being trained by The Brain Bunch. In addition, The Brain Bunch will provide resources and logistical support for these ambassadors to host their events.

"Helping Young Brainiacs Explore the Brain". Our organization is the world's first elementary school neuroscience education. We recruit high school student ambassadors to lead events in local schools and libraries that inform elementary school students about the brain through an interactive curriculum virtually and in-person. In addition, we promote awareness for the neuroscience field amongst young students through our blogs.
Over the past year, The Brain Bunch reached over 400 students across the world in learning about the brain. Our goal is to eventually expose every student in the world to the brain in order to inspire a future generation of neuroscientists and informed citizens that understand the importance of learning about the brain. Our interactive curriculum's appeal comes from tried and tested implementations of activities and short lessons that makes the content digestible. With the help of professional neuroscientists, we have categorized our content into 6 modules: music, sports, painting/art, magic/optical illusions, food, and movies. Our programs has a 78% satisfaction rate with an approximately 50% increase in post-session test score.
