We invite you to connect with our students, faculty, staff, and alumni at one of our upcoming events.
International Brain Bee
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Indianapolis Brain Bee will not be held. Please check back in September for our plans for next year's Bee.
The International Brain Bee is an annual event aiming to motivate high school students to learn about the brain and inspire the pursuit of careers in neuroscience research. The IUPUI Department of Psychology sponsors the Brain Bee as part of the School of Science’s commitment to advancing scientific minds and fostering community interest in the sciences.
Open to students in grades 9–12, contestants in the spelling bee–style event answer questions about the brain and nervous system until a single student remains, having answered all questions correctly.
Winners receive a Dean of Science Scholarship to study any science major at the IUPUI Purdue School of Science! The first place winner also receives airfare and hotel for them and a parent/guardian to attend the National Brain Bee.
You are able to start learning and studying now! All questions will come from the free Brain Facts book.
Are you a high school teacher? Let your students know about the event! We’ll post the registration once it’s open. Look for free study sessions hosted by our Neuroscience Club members.
