Event Description

The Brain Bee is a neuroscience competition for high school students. The competition format is question and multiple choice answer.

 

The day will be filled with fun giveaways, interesting talks, tasty lunch, and exciting competition!

 

Background: 

The purpose of the Brain Bee is to motivate young men and women to learn about the human brain, and to inspire them to enter careers in the basic and clinical brain sciences. The world needs future clinicians and researchers to treat and find cures for more than 1000 neurological and psychological disorders. Many former competitors are now working in neuroscience, neurology, psychology and related fields.

 

Students prepare for the competition by studying the guide that is freely downloadable from the Internet. Topics include brain functions such as sensations, intelligence, emotions, movement, and consciousness, and brain dysfunctions such as Alzheimer’s, autism, and addictions, as well as research techniques and medical technology.

 
 

 

Eligibility:

All San Bernardino high school students may compete as long as they have not participated in another local Brain Bee during the 2013-14 school year.

 

 

How to prepare:

Students wishing to compete in the Brain Bee should register here at eventzilla as a "Brain Bee competitor" and download a copy of the Brain Facts study guide available here: http://www.brainfacts.org/About-Neuroscience/Brain-Facts-book

 

 

Spectators who don't desire to compete, but are interested in learning more about neuroscience--or who want to cheer on their participant--should register here at eventzilla as a "non-competitor".
