On Saturday, May 27, 2017, high school students from across Canada will come to McMaster University to compete for the CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee championship. They will engage in challenging events, testing their knowledge of neuroscience and their skills at patient diagnosis and neuroanatomy.

The national competitors are the top students in their region – champions who have already won their local brain bee competitions. Local competitions are held coast to coast:  Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, London, Waterloo, Guelph, Hamilton, Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, and Newfoundland Brain Bees. These students are the next generation of neuroscientists!

Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place national winners will receive trophies and cash prizes ($1500 for 1st place, $1000 for 2nd place, and $500 for 3rd place). Our 2017 champion will be honoured on a beautiful perpetual trophy which will be put on display at their high school for one year.  Our 2017 champion will be given the opportunity to work in a neuroscience laboratory.  Our 2017 champion will travel to Washington DC, to represent Canada at the International Brain Bee World Championship (IBBWC).  More details coming soon.

Best of luck to everyone competing in their local competitions across Canada!  If you have won your local competition, you can learn more about how to prepare for the Canadian National Brain Bee on this page.
