About Brain Bee
The Brain Bee is a program designed especially to stimulate high school students to learn about neuroscience.
Like a Spelling Bee, the Brain Bee allows students to compete with each other in their knowledge of neuroscience. The competition involves a written exam that includes a practical component involving neuroanatomy. Participants advancing to the next round compete with each other in a game board-style Q&A.
The winner of the Local Brain Bee will move on to participate in the National Brain Bee. Take a look at our FAQ page to find out how you can prepare for the Brain Bee!
