Alabama high school student places second in preliminary for International Brain Bee
High school students from across Alabama tested their neuroscience knowledge at the fourth annual Alabama Brain Bee held on campus on Feb. 22, and the winner placed second nationally in March.
The Alabama event, coordinated by UAB Neuroscience undergraduate students, is a precursor to the International Brain Bee in August. Alabama champion Venkata Macha of Montgomery’s Loveless Academic Magnet Program represented the state and beat out 47 other state representatives to win second place at the national competition March 16.
The Brain Bee tests a student’s knowledge of the human brain, covering such topics as intelligence, emotions, memory, sleep, vision, hearing, sensations, addictions and brain research. Its purpose is to motivate young men and women to learn about the brain and inspire them to consider careers in neuroscience.
The International Brain Bee was founded 15 years ago by Norbert Myslinski, Ph.D., through his foundation, Mankind for International Neuroscience Development, Inc., or MIND, Inc.
