The Paris Brain Institute will host the France Brain Bee on 20 March 2021 in an online competition !
The International Brain Bee (IBB) is an international neuroscience competition for secondary school students. Its mission is to help students become familiar with the brain and its functions, to inform them about careers in neuroscience and to dispel misconceptions about brain diseases.
Since 2018, the Brain Institute is delighted to be the official host of the France Brain Bee competition. This year the competition will take place online on 20 March 2021. In order to make it happen we will be working closely with the non-profit organisation, Gifted in France, to get several French high schools to participate in the national competition.
Within the Brain Institute, the researcher Jacobo SITT will lead the involvement of expert researchers who will help to select the winning student on the day of the competition and offer him/her a training session to prepare him/her for the final competition.
The winner of the France Brain Bee 2021 competition will participate in the International Brain Bee competition at the IBRO conference in September 2021 normally in San Diego CA, USA https://thebrainbee.org/.
This year due to COVID 19 the international competition will be held online.
