Jimmies student creates a Buzz at Brain Bee Challenge

Following a great result in the Regional Round of the Australian Brain Bee Challenge, State Finals were held at UQ today with a further quiz based on a lengthy text book about how the brain works.

Steven was interviewed for the Channel 7 news whilst competing at the event.

The Australian Brain Bee Challenge (ABBC) is a competition for high school students in year 10 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 provides current and accurate information on the latest advances in neuroscience research, its value to the community, and promote careers in science and technology.
