- Create an interest of school students in neuroscience by encouraging participation in the competition
- Provide students with practical lab experience in neuroscience
- Provide them with an opportunity to meet with neuroscientists and university students and explore a career in STEM
Why do we run Brain Bee?
2) The growing burden of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, means that more neuroscientists are needed to address current and future medical challenges. By nurturing our children and igniting an interest in neuroscience earlier this may lead to a long-lasting passion for science.
3) Science competitions improve reasoning and critical thinking skills, and also fosters friendship and team work.
4) The educational nature of the Brain Bee event will help to change public misconceptions about the brain and, by bringing neuroscience experts and the public together, it will help bridge the gap between public and science.
Why do we need money?
