About Us


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.


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! Click HERE for our interest form!


In order to adapt to online learning, we have shifted some resources into producing easily accessible material for all students and teachers. Check out our online resources tab for more information!​​

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.
