A non-profit created by doctoral students in cognitive science and neuroscience to create playful tools to outreach cognitive science.
Today, this non-profit includes teachers who provide their expertise in teaching and spreading knowledge, as well as fulfilling their wish to provide new teaching methods to present neuroscientific topics to their students.
The content of these presentations are developed with scientists in order to develop effective teaching methods, and monitor and improve the teaching experience.
Donders graduate school students and alumni: a team of 8 doctoral students and ex-students lead the development of new tools for the program and manage the community of users

Teachers, testing the kit
If Cogni’Junior is leading this adventure, it’s because we hope to provide tools that can be use by all, so the use of the kit should not require initial knowledge of neuroscience.
It’s with this aim that the team wish to take one year to improve the kit with all feedback that we can get from users. It will get out a unic program, made with and for teachers.
After this validation on the pedagogic level, we will lead a scientific validation of the effect of the kit on academic improvement (year 3).
- Charlotte Cherel: young designer, she want to conceive products that engage users, here children, in an active use of their attention. She work today on the creation of objectsthat would help the practice of attentive attendance in class.
- Sabine Lagarde: Mindfulness expert, she provided feedback on the creation of mindfulness exercises for the teaching kit.
