MindCORE supports a variety of public programs on and off campus to engage the academic community and the public with our research.
Our outreach goals include:
- Enhance public understanding of human intelligence and behavior;
- Broaden participation of young scientists from groups typically underrepresented in cognitive and brain science;
- Inform policy-making across governmental levels with insights about human behavior and decision making;
- Support and encourage faculty and young investigator outreach initiatives in our community; and
- Inspire the next generation of explorers of the mind.

Have a question about mind and brain sciences? Want to talk to a scientist doing active research? Send us your questions and requests through our “Ask a Scientist” program!
We maintain a collection of exhibits, demonstrations, and educational tools to be used for scientific outreach by the Penn and Philadelphia communities
Every semester, we match undergraduate students with a mentor who is just a step ahead in pursuing a career in the sciences and/or research (e.g. graduate students and postdoctoral fellows). Learn more here!
Behind the CV: Stories from Faculty (a “Growing Up in Science” Event) is an event series about becoming and being a scientist. Faculty share their stories with a focus on the unspoken challenges of a life in academia.
PhDemystified invites faculty from the University of Pennsylvania to open up about the unspoken struggles of becoming a scientist, covering topics from imposter syndrome to advice for students and early career scientists.
