Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Society
The Northeast Ohio Brain Bee
What is the Brain Bee?
The Brain Bee is a highly publicized live Q & A competition that tests high school students' knowledge of neuroscience. The best young brains are quizzed about the brain and how it relates to intelligence, memory, emotions, sensations, movement, stress, aging, sleep and brain disorders.
How does it work?
Local coordinators (like Baldwin Wallace University) contact high schools (grades 9 to 12) for interested students and conduct their local brain bees during January, February, or March. The winner is then invited to the International Competition. All the questions come from the book Brain Facts, published by the Society for Neuroscience, which can be found on the Society for Neuroscience website.
The Brain Bee Competition
Baldwin Wallace University has been hosting the Annual Northeast Ohio Brain Bee since 1999. The top three finalists at the Northeast Ohio Brain Bee receive scholarship awards to Baldwin-Wallce College. In the past, awards were $1,000 for first place, $750 for second place, and $500 for third place.
