Wales Brain Bee

The Wales Brain Bee is an annual event based on The International Brain Bee, a not-for-profit neuroscience competition funded by Dr. Norbert Myslinski.

The aim of the Brain Bee is to inspire the next generation of young scientists. The event offers a great opportunity for students to make friends across schools, talk to early career researchers about study and career options as well as enrich their knowledge with hands-on experience in a laboratory.

The competition consists of practical lab work in teams, a series of written exam-style questions and a team neuro-challenge based on diagnosing patients on a range of neurological symptoms.

Each year, teams of up to 10 students from a number of schools and colleges across Wales compete. The highest scoring school or college will be awarded the Wales Brain Bee shield, with prizes of gift vouchers worth £50, £25 and £10 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place students.
