The International Brain Bee was founded over twenty years ago to promote engagement with neuroscience through competitions that test high school students’ knowledge of the brain. Over thirty nations and regions will be represented this year, spanning all six continents. Over four days, 31 national student champions will demonstrate their advanced understanding of neuroanatomy, histology, neurological diseases, patient diagnosis, genetics, neurochemistry, and much more. The final section of the competition on September 21 entails a live judging panel of world-class experts. This section is open to IBRO Congress attendees for glimpse of the next generation of top neuroscientists and medical professionals. In addition to the competition, the students will be granted a special tour of the city, an elegant award ceremony, and many opportunities for cross-cultural exchange to develop a global community of young scientists who are fascinated by neuroscience. More information can be found on the website, www.thebrainbee.org.
The International Brain Bee is made possible by a joint governance body representing IBRO, the American Psychological Association, the Society for Neuroscience, The Dana Foundation, and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies.
