Wales Brain Bee

  • CalendarSeptember, December

Cardiff University invites teams from all schools and colleges across Wales to join the annual Wales Brain Bee competition.

The event consists of mixed practical lab work, video clips and written exercises that will encourage students to learn more about one of the most complex structures in the universe - the human brain. Each year, teams of up to 10 students compete in a series of challenges and a multiple-choice written test. The highest scoring school or college will be awarded the Wales Brain Bee shield, with individual prizes for the highest scoring students.
