Neuroscience News, Society & Partner News
Brain Bees are neuroscience competitions for teenagers (age 13 through 19) hosted around the world.
The Dana Foundation’s Winter issue of Cerebrum Magazine includes an article about the International Brain Bee and how the competition has influenced five finalists’ studies and careers. The IBB is looking to gather more data on Brain Bee alumni and hopes the article will inspire former competitors to connect.
About International Brain Bee
The International Brain Bee promotes student engagement with neuroscience through a three-tiered competition at local, national and international levels: students start by signing up for a Local Brain Bee, the winners of which compete in their country’s National Brain Bee. Every year, National Brain Bees send one representative to compete at the International Brain Bee world championship, taking place at a major neuroscience conference.
The IBB was incorporated in 2018 as a non-profit educational organization with the support of five international neuroscience and educational organizations. The organizations also form the IBB’s governing body with a sixth Governing Partner that joined in 2021: Alzheimer’s Association, American Psychological Association (APA), the Dana Foundation, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), and the Society for Neuroscience (SfN).
