Time to Plan Your Brain Awareness Week Outreach

This grant can help out too!

Want to join the worldwide quest to celebrate the brain in your school, institution or community next March? By October 1st, you can apply to receive up to $1,250 in funding as support for your outreach project. Brain Awareness Week will take place in March 2023, but the dates aren't binding as long as you run it under their campaign title.

If you're short on inspiration, no worries. Their website is chock-full of ideas for all ages and walks of life - be it for kids or adults, online or offline, events or non-events.

And the best thing about it? You can use these funds toward purchasing classroom equipment that will help teach new generations for years to come.

We're Still Recruiting Beta Testers

Get early access to our new web app!

You spoke out and we listened!

We're cooking up a new Spike Recorder web app so you don't have to sweat it with different devices. (Spoiler alert: it works on Chromebooks too.) Just hook up your gear, open the app in your browser, and spike away!

But before the official launch, our development team needs feedback from users like you. Sign up as a beta tester today and let us know what you like and (especially) what you don't.

We know that teachers are busy bees, so we wouldn't ask for much commitment. Just use the app normally and, if you notice any glitches or omissions, hit the bubble in the upper right corner and ping us your thoughts. We'll email you dev updates from time to time.
