What is the Brain Bee?  The Brain Bee will test your knowledge on human brain topics such as anatomy, sensations, movement, stress, aging, addiction, memory, and neurological diseases. The winner of the WNY Brain Bee is eligible to compete in the National Brain Bee in Baltimore, MD.

What is the format for the Brain Bee? In Round 1, all competitors will be asked the same question at the same time. Competitors will have 60 seconds to record their answer.  Competitors will be eliminated if they have answered 3 questions incorrectly. In Round II, remaining competitors will  be asked different questions, but from the same level of difficulty.  In this round, competitors answer the questions orally.  A panel  of  judges with expertise in neuroscience will make the decision on whether an answer is correct or incorrect.

How can I prepare for the Brain Bee? All questions for the Brain Bee come from Brain Facts, which can be downloaded   for free by clicking on the link below. A Brain Bee Prep Course  will also be held for free prior to the Brain Bee at Canisius College (date to be announced).


Eligibility: Must be a high school student from a WNY High School.
