Room at the Inn

Neuroscience Students Volunteer


In a partnership with VuWise and the Vanderbilt Conte Center the Neuroscience students were given the opportunity to participate in a unique and fun teaching opportunity at Room in the Inn. Room in the Inn is a homeless center that offers a variety of classes. Attending these classes provides the participants with credits that they can then use at the center to purchase various items (food, laundry, etc). Students volunteered for teaching slots in a class called “Science of our Lives,” to form a Neuroscience focused mini series component that allowed students to share their research and engage in discussion with the Nashville community.
