Open to students in grades 9-12, registration for the 2018 Brain Bee at IUPUI is now open. The competition will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, December 8, in Lilly Auditorium in University Library.

The IUPUI Departments of Psychology and Biology sponsor the local Brain Bee as part of the School of Science's commitment to advancing scientific minds and fostering community interest in the sciences.
Bucking tradition, family man Jake Whiteside graduates with neuroscience, Chinese combo
Before coming to campus, Whiteside was home-schooled. He moved out at 17 years old to fix up a mobile home, plumbing included, for the woman who became his wife shortly after his 18th birthday. Just weeks shy of commencement, he already has two young children. He'll also have two degrees, and even they aren't a common combination.
It would be easy to think that a trailblazer has to travel alone. In Whiteside's case, however, his success along nontraditional paths has been achieved largely with limitless support from those around him.
