Brain Bee - an international challenge

The New Zealand Brain Bee Challenge (NZBBC) is a competition for high school students in Year 11 to learn about the brain and its functions, discover the latest discoveries in neuroscience research, dispel misconceptions about neurological and mental illnesses and find out about the exciting career opportunities brain research has to offer.

The program was started in Australia in 2006 to address deficiencies in the public's perception of neuroscience.

The Brain Bee Challenge is run by the Australasian Neuroscience Society (ANS) with the involvement of Education Perfect. The Centre for Brain Research runs the New Zealand Round 2 Challenge.
