British Brain Bee

The British Brain Bee (Registered Charity Number 1175560) is an initiative which organises an annual neuroscience competition called the British Brain Bee and also fosters an interest in neurosciences and STEM in secondary schools. 

Dr Norbert Myslinski (University of Maryland) set up the Brain Bee in the USA in 1999 to motivate secondary school students to learn about the brain. Since then, the annual Brain Bee competition has grown in size and entrants from 60 countries now compete in the International Brain Bee competition. The Brain Bee in the UK has been running since 2015.

The main purpose of the initiative in the UK is to advance neuroscience education from early years by:

•running an annual competition (www.brainbee-uk.com) and 

•by visiting schools, talking about careers in STEM, demonstrating brain-related experiments, and explaining brain diseases.

 

We aim to:

•create an interest of pupils in neuroscience and brain disorders;

•provide students with neuroscience practical experience;

•provide the opportunity to meet with neuroscientists, clinicians, and students who are studying neurosciences;

•inform about prevention of brain diseases and 

•raise tolerance towards those affected by such brain disorders as autism and depression.
