16th Annual Brain Bee @ McMaster University

16th Annual Hamilton Brain Bee at McMaster University
Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Time:  1:00 PM
Location:  Psychology Building (Building 34 on this map), McMaster campus, room 155.


Registration will open in the new year.

How to prepare

High school students in the Hamilton-Halton and surrounding area from grades 9 through 12 are welcome to compete at the local brain bee.  Students demonstrate their knowledge about the brain and neuroscience, including fascinating topics involving intelligence, memory, emotions, sensations, movement, stress, aging, sleep, addiction, and more. Participating is a valuable experience that you can add to your resume — not to mention the possibility of winning prizes and fame!
All the questions will come from Neuroscience: Science of the Brain.
There are other resources that you might find useful and inspiring!
For example: Brain Facts and the Brain Facts Book


There are prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.  The 1st place winner’s name will be engraved on the Hamilton Brain Bee perpetual traveling trophy plaque and this plaque will be displayed in the trophy case at their school for one year.  The 1st place winner will also represent Hamilton at the Annual CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee (end of May 2019). Graduate students from our department will help the winner prepare for the national event.  Additional exciting prizes are awarded at the national competition each year.  The 2019 CIHR Canadian Brain Bee champion will win a trip for two to represent Canada at the International Brain Bee competition.
