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 is proud to host the annual University of Waterloo Brain Bee. It is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the brain and the importance of brain research. It also provides the opportunity to visit the University and to meet some of our students and professors in kinesiology, neuroscience and other areas.

Lots of fun, gift packages, and cash prizes for the winners! Registration for 2017 opens this January. 

So...what's a brain bee?
