The Science and Technology Series is inspired by the daily advances in technology that affect our lives in countless ways. In these programs, students and parents explore aspects of technology and science through demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on workshops led by pioneering scientists, mathematicians, and academic researchers. Please join us for these unique programs specially arranged for CTY students and their families. Programs are for students in grades 7-10 unless indicated otherwise.
The typical Science and Technology program runs from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The day includes specially-designed workshops and presentations in which scientists share their research and experience. For part of the day, adults may explore the theme of the program in separate, concurrent sessions specifically designed for CTY parents. The Series also includes overnight and extended programs.

Neuroscience is the complex but fascinating study of the nervous system, its structure, and vital connections between the brain and the body. The Johns Hopkins University Neuroscience Program invites you to spend “A Day Inside the Nervous System.” Through hands-on experiments, sheep brain dissections, and eye-opening presentations given by experts in the field, you will have the chance to gain a better understanding of how, why, and what the nervous system does to sustain life in the body and produce thoughts within the brain. You will also work in the state-of-the-art Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory, alongside world-renowned Johns Hopkins faculty and some of the brightest undergraduates. Join us for an exciting opportunity to see the nervous system through a neuroscientist’s eye! This program will begin around 9:00 a.m. and end around 4:00 p.m. Lunch is included.
