Students Compete in International Brain Bee
Students from around the world traveled to Washington, DC, in August to compete in the International Brain Bee, a neuroscience competition that encourages secondary school students to learn about the brain and pursue education and careers in the sciences. The Brain Bee begins with local and regional competitions that feed into the national and international competitions. The winner of the 2014 International Brain Bee is Gayathri Muthukumar of India.
The Brain Bee is organized and hosted by University of Maryland associate professor Norbert Myslinski and sponsored by the American Psychological Association. The Society for Neuroscience hosts the DC regional Brian Bee, supports the U.S. and international contests, and arranges scientific lab internships for the U.S. and international winners.
