Galveston Scavenger Hunt
Neuroscience Talks
Our members range from researchers, neurologists and medical students, nurses, and interested community members. Our talks bring top neuroscientists, students and community members together to learn about the latest neuroscience research.
At SfN Galveston we believe in the promise of every child and the power of education. We also know that science can and should be fun and exciting. We provide engaging and interactive learning opportunities for  Galveston County students. 
Every year we hold a Photo Scavenger Hunt race in downtown Galveston to raise money for our outreach activities. Teams of 4-5 compete for prizes sponsored by amazing local Galveston businesses.
