Brown Brain Bee

Neuroscience outreach program for Rhode Island high school students. Brown students teach weekly classes from October through February based on a curriculum by the Society for Neuroscience. Classes prepare students for the Brown Brain Bee, a trivia competition held in February. Winner gets a $200 cash prize and advances to the National Brain Bee and potentially the International Brain Bee. The hope is that exposing students to neuroscience early inspires a lifelong interest in science and helps students choose colleges to suit their interests. We also hold special events, such as lab tours, throughout the year to connect students to brain science resources at Brown.
