A Daily Lift – March 30, 2020

Good Morning,


I hope that you are doing well and that you had a nice weekend!


Our “lifts” for today:


From Dr. Ravi Radhakrishnan (Chair of BE), whose Neuroscience colleague, Dr. Martha Farah, Director of Penn’s Center for Neuroscience & Society, shared the following link for your high school age students. It is a self-guided course on neuroscience developed jointly by the Center for Neuroscience & Society and the Franklin Institute. It has been taught for several years in select Philly public high schools by their own teachers.  Some activities won’t work outside a classroom, but most will. According to Dr. Farah, “It might help pass the days and maybe even ignite an interest in neuroscience!”

You can e-mail Dr. Farah with questions at mfarah@upenn.edu



From Kathryn Fogle (HR), whose husband, Dr. James Voelkel of the Science History Institute, shared the following link to lunchtime talks that center on current research projects of historians of science, research fellows, artists, and others:
