Are you interested in:

  • how our mind interprets our surroundings and makes decisions
  • how our brain controls our muscles so we can move, and
  • how chemical imbalances in the brain may cause a range of different neurological diseases?

If yes, then participate in the University of Waterloo’s Annual Brain Bee Competition! You will learn this and much more!

The University of Waterloo’s Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences annual Region of Waterloo Brain Bee is scheduled to take place online on Friday, April 29, 2022 from 4pm to 7pm.

The Brain Bee is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the brain and the importance of brain research. There is no cost to register or participate in this competition.

All students who register prior to our early-bird deadline (April 1, 2022 11:59pm) will receive a Brain Bee Gift package that we will drop off at your high school.

The event will feature some live demonstrations of neuroscience lab activities happening on campus, a short-answer style quiz, draws for additional prizes, and cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners!

The winner of the Waterloo Brain Bee will have the opportunity to visit campus and learn additional neuroanatomy using real human brain specimens. They will also advance to compete in the National Brain Bee competition which is taking place virtually on May 27, 2022 and May 28, 2022.  Additional details about the National Brain Bee competition can be found at the main site.
