CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee

The CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee (CCNBB) is an event that brings together the very top high school students to test their neuroscience and brain research knowledge. The Canadian winner will go on to represent Canada at the International Brain Bee, an annual event held since 1998.

Brain Bee is like a spelling bee for high school students, except that the students compete to determine who has the "best brain" on such topics as intelligence, memory, emotions, stress, brain imaging, sleep, and neurological disease. All Brain Bee competitions wrap up with the exciting oral elimination rounds which abide by the same rules as spelling bees.
