What is a Brain Bee?
A Brain Bee is a neuroscience competition designed especially for high school students that tests their understanding of brains and the nervous system and how they work together. The winner of the Maine Regional Brain Bee competition will advance to the national competition taking place on March 4-5 at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. The winner of that event will take part in the international competition.
