2021 Brain Bee

2021 Brain Bee

Last Term our Year 10 Girls Science Class participated in the 2021 Brain Bee competition. The group spent most of the Term preparing for the competition by completing predatory lessons and mini-quizzes and two students, Peehu Choudhary and Sofia Ferro have qualified for the second round of the competition.

While initially, this selection meant both students would travel to the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland, with travel restrictions and COVID complications, it now appears the second round will be held online.

The Australian and New Zealand Brain Bee Challenge (ABBC & NZBBC) is a competition for high school students in Years 10 (Australia) and 11 (New Zealand) to learn about the brain and its functions, learn about neuroscience research, find out about careers in neuroscience and to dispel misconceptions about neurological and mental illnesses.

The program was started in Australia in 2006 to address a number of deficiencies in the public’s perception of science in general, and neuroscience in particular. The ABBC and NZBBC provides current and accurate information on the latest advances in neuroscience research, its value to the community, and promote careers in science and technology.

Congratulations to all the students who were involved and best of luck to Peehu and Sofia for Round 2!
