Reading Regional BRAIN BEE COMPETITION – University of Reading

Show access keys


2019 sees the first regional Brain Bee Competition being held in Reading. Secondary school children aged 14–19 will have the opportunity to take part in this competition where they will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of the brain, neuroscience and psychology, and have the chance to win fantastic prizes and represent their region at the national competition later on in the year. All material students will need to know for the event will be provided once registered.

The winner of the National Brain Bee will then represent the UK at the International Brain Bee. The International Brain Bee was founded in 1999 by Dr. Norbert Myslinski. The Brain Bee 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.

More than 60 nations are engaged in coordinating Brain Bee programs worldwide, and this number is rapidly increasing. Around 50,000 students participate across all six continents every year, and more than 600 neuroscientists have been involved with organising and judging the events.
