SFNKC is holding its 8th Annual Brain Bee Competition this January 31, 2015, and we would like to invite all area high-school students to participate in this competition.
The Brain Bee is a live Q&A competition that tests the neuroscience knowledge of high school students. The winner of our Brain Bee is eligible to compete in the National Brain Bee in March. We hope to increase our number of participants even further this year with representation from a number of school districts in Missouri and Kansas.
The winner of our regional competition will not only get the opportunity to compete in the National Brain Bee, but also the opportunity to compete for a spot in the International Brain Bee in Washington, DC, in which winners receive cash prizes or a paid summer neuroscience fellowship.
This competition promotes neuroscience education in a fun and competitive manner, is an excellent opportunity to establish contact with neuroscience professors and provides opportunities to volunteer at additional neuroscience outreach events.
The competition questions are derived from Brain Facts, which may be downloaded here.
