Our Animators camp allows young brainiacs to learn about how the brain works and how they can use the principles of neuroscience to improve brain health.

The camp introduces foundational research skills that the students use in collaboration to create a stop motion animated film about the brain.  [video]

The Explorers camp introduces basic neuroscience training that focuses on developing good lab technique, designing experiments, and  working independently with lab equipment.

This camp develops an appreciation for the research process in neuroscience labs and develops critical thinking and design skills for a greater understanding of how science is applied. [video]

Our Researchers camp develops advanced neuroscience training for students in preparation for university. The focus is on independent lab design and experimentation to help students foster skills in data gathering and analysis. This camp simulates the environment of a research lab to give students a deeper understanding of how neuroscience knowledge is utilized in the world. [video]

 
 

scholarships & financial aid

Since 2014 we have been proud to offer students who have unlimited curiosity about neuroscience, but limited financial resources, the opportunity to attend Bright Lights in the Lab.

Firefly Fellows receive a fully funded scholarship that covers camp tuition and also includes complimentary lunches daily and TTC tickets to and from the camp. This funding allows students from priority neighbourhoods (see map from City of Toronto) to attend either advanced or junior bright lights.

Capable students who live in other neighborhoods will also be considered for financial aid.
