The registration to the 4th English Brain Bee competition is now open! Follow the link and register your interest.

The competition will take place on Saturday the 17th of March, 2018. The venue is still in discussion but most likely it will be the University College London Main Campus.

To prepare for the contest, students should study Neuroscience: Science of the Brain and Brain Facts book which are both available on  Resources page. Any other neuroscience textbook would further help you prepare for the contest. Keep an eye on Resources page because in the next couple of weeks it will expand.

As in previous years, the competition will be comprised of 4 parts:

  • neuroanatomy/neurohistology challenge (we are working hard to get a lab for this part and obtain enough real brain samples for the contest)
  • written MCQ test
  • podium challenge which is an oral question and answer test (similar to Jeopardy!)
  • patient diagnosis challenge

The day will be full of activities, talks by neuroscientists, experiments, games and networking opportunities!

Lastly, there will be many prizes, including neuroscience textbooks, for the Top 5 winners and 5 participants who will rank 11th to 15th in the final score table. Also we will be giving out prizes for games and other challenges throughout the day.  The winner of the competition will be awarded a trip to Germany to represent the UK in the International Brain Bee contest!
