The Neuro-G Project engages in neuroscience education and advocacy in Nigeria, addressing challenges like dropout rates, science enrollment decline, lack of neuroscience background in secondary schools, gender disparity, misconceptions about neurological diseases, and scarcity of neuroscience professionals. Targets include secondary school students in remote or disadvantaged areas, victimized students, and those with neuro-disabilities. University student mentors enhance exposure. The “Neuro-G Club” is a focal approach across 12 schools in Nigeria’s geopolitical zones, offering mentoring, training, exhibitions, the “My-Phone-for-Neuroscience Challenge,” and neuro-facility excursions. The project successfully influenced schools to integrate neuroscience into biology curricula, fostering students’ passion for neuroscience, particularly the target group.
