The ICM will host the France Brain Bee on 21 March 2020 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.
The ICM is delighted to once again be the official host of the France Brain Bee on 21 March 2020. We will be working closely with the non-profit organization, Gifted in France, to get several French high schools to participate in the national competition.
Jacobo Sitt will lead the involvement of ICM research experts who will help select the winning student on the day of the competition and provide a training session to prepare him 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 in San Diego CA, USA.
Founded by Dr. Norbert Myslinski at the University of Maryland in 1999, the International Brain Bee Competition now has over 50 participating countries. BBI is a non-profit educational organisation formed through partnerships with the International Brain Research Organisation (IBRO), the Dana Foundation, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) and the American Psychological Association (APA).
