The Brain Bee was founded in 1999 and is the world-wide neuroscience competition for high school students. The competition motivates students to learn about the brain, captures their imaginations, and inspires them to pursue neuroscience careers to help treat and find cures for neurological and psychological disorders.

Currently, more than 60 nations and 175 chapters are engaged in coordinating Brain Bee programs around the world, and this number is rapidly increasing. About 50,000 students participate across all six continents every year, and more than 600 neuroscientists have been involved with organizing and judging the events.

The Brain Bee competition is organized on 3 levels: local, national, and international. The first-place prize winners are granted the opportunity to compete at the national level. The National Champions are, in turn, invited to represent their country at the annual international competition, which is hosted by different neuroscience organizations during an international conference.

The goal of the Brain Bee Training Program is to prepare highly motivated students to compete in the Brain Bee competition in 2023. The students will follow an intensive curriculum prepared by experienced Brain Bee coaches. Note that this course is advanced and before signing up for this camp you should already know the entire content of the Brain Facts booklet.
