The International Brain Bee is a neuroscience competition for high school students. Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to compete in the annual event. The International Brain Bee was founded in 1998 by Dr. Norbert Myslinski. It has now grown to more than 150 chapters in more than 30 countries and six continents. Every participating country or region selects one student as its representative in the event. The competition aims to pique student interest in brain research and inspire students to engage in careers in such fields as biology, medical science, and psychology.
