On May 31st the top high school students from across Canada will come to McMaster University to compete for the CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee championship. These are the top students who have already won their regional competitions. They will meet to engage in challenging events, testing their knowledge of neuroscience and their skills at patient diagnosis and neuroanatomy.

Competitors will come from 13 cities across Canada, from coast to coast.  

All of the competitors will take home an experience of a lifetime.  Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will also take home trophies and cash prizes ($1500 for first place; $1000 second place; $500 third place). The very top student also takes home a travelling trophy to display at their school for one year, and is given the opportunity to work as a summer intern in a neuroscience laboratory.  

The challenge is not over for the CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee champion.  The winner will represent Canada at the International Brain Bee (IBB).  The 2014 IBB willl be held in Washington DC, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association (August 7-10, 2014).

Good luck to everyone in 2014!
