This fundraiser was made to accompany the upcoming Noggin Fest event for folks who would like to donate online. NW Noggin is a science outreach nonprofit based in Portland, OR that combines art and science to inspire people of all ages to learn about the amazing stuff in their noggins! This is all made possible by Bill Griesar, Jeff Leake, and countless volunteers. The volunteer pool is very diverse and includes undergraduate scientists-to-be, local Portland artists, respected neuroscientists, and more. Your donations will not only fund the education of K-12 kids, but also unlock amazing opportunities for current and future neuroscientists to translate research into understandable and accessible fun. STEAM ahead!
