Know a high school student who dreams of being a brain surgeon? Have them sign up for the 8th annual local championship for the International Brain Bee hosted by Burke Rehabilitation Hospital.
The Brain Bee is a not-for-profit neuroscience competition for high school students designed to encourage them to learn more about the brain while also inspiring them to pursue careers in neurology and neurological research.
Students in grades 9-12 will be quizzed by a distinguished panel of clinicians and therapists from Burke on a wide range of topics including human neuroanatomy, neuroscience, types of diagnoses and brain cell identification.
Burke’s Brain Bee is part of the first round of qualifying in the International Brain Bee competition. The winner will move on to compete in the national Brain Bee in Washington, D.C. Winners from the U.S. finals will have the chance to compete in the international championship later this year.
The Brain Bee will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the Rosedale Conference room of Building #4 on the Burke campus located at 785 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains.
