What is Neuromatch Academy?
Neuromatch Academy (NMA) launched in 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our aim is to provide globally-accessible, high-quality, TA-supported training in computational techniques related to neuroscience. In 2020 and 2021, NMA designed and ran a fully online 3-week Computational Neuroscience and a Deep Learning course for over 3000 students with more than 350 teaching assistants (TAs) working in virtual inverted (or flipped) classrooms and on small group projects. Fourteen languages, active community management, and low cost allowed for an unprecedented level of inclusivity and universal accessibility.
What’s in a course?
Our courses are intensive 3-week programs involving hands-on tutorials developed by experts in the field. Accepted students are placed into TA-led pods (groups) using the Neuromatch algorithm, which matches students with common interests who are in the same timezone and their preferred language for instruction. Students also receive personalized support as they work through hands-on tutorials and collaborate on course projects. [Please note that course participation requires active attendance and attention of the students for 3 weeks.]
What does it cost?
Neuromatch Academy’s mission is to make education affordable to everybody, no matter their financial background. We do this by pricing our courses significantly lower than other summer schools, adjusting for national economic factors, and allowing students to pay what they can when those adjustments are insufficient.
