The Brain Bee is an international competition founded by the Society for Neuroscience. These live Q&A competitions test the neuroscience knowledge of high school students around the world, and consist of oral, written and hands-on components.
Students in grades 9 to 12 from Calgary and surrounding area schools are invited to compete. Members of the public are welcome to be a part of the audience.
