Computerized Qualifying Round: January 23-27, 2017
Minnesota State Competition: Wednesday, February 8, 2017
Registration is open until January 20, 2017

The International Brain Bee is a Q & A competition about neuroscience for high school students. The best young brains are quizzed about the brain and how it relates to intelligence, memory, emotions, sensations, movement, stress, aging, sleep and brain disorders (such as addiction, Alzheimer disease and stroke).

In Minnesota, the Brain Bee competition consists of two parts. Students first participate in an one hour, computerized multiple choice test that will be held at their school at a prearranged time during the week of January 23. The top 30 students from the preliminary round progress to the State competition, which is a Q & A competition that will be held on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota on February 8, 2017.
