Brain Boot Camp


Do you have students who want to learn about stroke and heart attack? Or try a medical simulator? Or see a 3D printer? Or hear from health and science professionals about potential careers? Here at the Jacobs Institute, we can make it happen! Our 1.5- to 2-hour Brain Boot Camps educate and inspire.

The Jacobs Institute Brain Boot Camp is a special opportunity to teach schoolchildren about heart attack and stroke, signs and symptoms, treatments, and more. We customize our programs to teach students about what educators want to highlight! Students can learn about heart attack and stroke symptoms, work on a medical simulator, see a 3D-printed heart, watch a pre-recorded medical procedure (if appropriate), and tour our unique facility. Along the way, students will also hear various professionals tell about their own career path that brought them to the Jacobs Institute.

We are now accepting requests for potential dates for Brain Boot Camp for the 2016-2017 school year. NEW for this year, we can only host Boot Camps on Fridays. The requests are limited to one per school, due to the more limited schedule, and will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. We ask for no more than 30 attendees per tour, including chaperones. Please note that the Jacobs Institute does not cover any costs or provide any transportation or refreshments.

Request forms can be found here. Please submit all requests to Allison Kupferman, Communications & Community Outreach Manager, at akupferman@jacobsinstitute.com.

We are excited to have you and your students visit in the upcoming school year!
