Neuroscience is the growing field of research and sciences. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most high growth industries in the future. Why? It influences our daily lives, health, the advancement of technology (including artificial intelligence, or AI), and the augmentation of our cognitive abilities (e.g., learning and memory). In fact, it touches every single little aspect of our lives no matter how young or old we are.
Neuroscience is also going through a change as it bridges its transition into industry. The movement is driven by both an industry need for more sophisticated tools and a desire for the discipline to move beyond academia.
In short, it is a great time to be curious about and work within neuroscience. The British Brain Bee thus aims to promote neuroscience among the young generation. It inspires young brains to be curious about how the brain works, how we learn or memorise, etc.
Currently, we are looking for the following volunteer roles:
Brain Bee Ambassador
Are you interested in neuroscience communication and engagement with schools? British Brain Bee is a non-profit organisation that runs outreach neuroscience initiatives in the UK. Our goal is to promote the advancement of neuroscience education at schools. We do this by running an annual competition called the British Brain Bee.
This year we are expanding massively and we have many ambitious plans. One of them is to visit schools first in Greater London and then in other cities, give talks to students about neuroscience research, career, and of course the Brain Bee competition. As a scientist would you like to become a Brain Bee Ambassador in your region? Your duties would be to:
- Promote the Brain Bee and neuroscience in schools of your region
- Organise a regional Brain Bee competition and select a regional winner
- Visit schools in your region
- Fundraise for the initiative
- Have fun…bzzz!
