Welcome to the InterAxon Family!

In addition to visiting K-12 students and hosting events on UCLA’s campus, InterAxon prides itself on being an all-inclusive, welcoming organization where anyone interested in science and service can join, regardless of major or year. We truly are one big family and we hope you can join us to meet and make life-long friends along the way!

We're Back!

Through the transition from virtual to in-person attendance, InterAxon at UCLA was able to safely shift back to visiting schools and holding meetings in person! ​

Members were required to take a COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring Survey each time before visiting schools and were reminded to remain 6-feet apart during meetings. Occassional school visits and events were also held online.

With the help of all our amazing members, as well as our partner schools, InterAxon was able to have a successful Fall Quarter. We look forward to more amazing future events!

Our Mission

To create and foster interest, excitement, and curiosity about the brain. We travel to elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools in disadvantaged areas of Los Angeles to work with students at schools receiving poor funding in the sciences.

Our History

InterAxon was founded at UCLA in 2006 in affiliation with the Brain Research Institute (BRI). Our club specifically targets Title I schools, which describe K-12 schools that are underfunded in the sciences. We aim to build the confidence of these students so that they are less intimidated by STEM fields in the future!

Interested in joining the InterAxon family? We accept members throughout the academic year, only a membership form and one-time fee required!

InterAxon is a student group that was founded in 2006 by an undergraduate student, Shanna Fang, right after she took one of the first Project Brainstorm as part of the undergraduate neuroscience program.
