Grant Information

Year Awarded
Dana Education

This grant will continue funding for two Secret Science Club/Dana Foundation collaborative programs, to be named the “Dana Foundation Neuroscience & Society Talk Series.” The talks are free and open to the public and take place in-person at Secret Science Club’s mainstage venue, the Bell House, in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

At Secret Science Club (SSC) events, scientists deliver accessible, data-driven talks on discoveries in their fields and unleash scientific research on inquisitive audiences. All SSC programs provide opportunities for bi-directional exchange between the audience and speakers through a lengthy Q&A following the talks. SSC events typically draw between 200-400 attendees.

In the past, SSC/Dana Foundation programs were presented in a traditional lecture-style format. For this new talk series, SSC will employ a new format featuring neuroscientists in dialogue with practitioners from other disciplines, such as the arts, ethics, education, or the humanities. The talks will continue to include Q&As that engage attendees in conversation with the speakers. SSC will work in collaboration with the Foundation to select speakers and topics in neuroscience and society that elevate diverse perspectives. The events will be recorded and posted on the Foundation’s YouTube channel for viewing.

This grant supports the Dana Education objective to support sustained informal education that aims to strengthen knowledge of neuroscience and its connections to society and empower people of all ages to use that knowledge in their every day lives.
