Max Planck's Brain Bee

Coming to the Max Planck Florida Institute (MPFI) this Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 11:00am is the “Brain Bee Challenge.” In honor of Brain Awareness Week the highly acclaimed Max Planck institute is throwing a fun and challenging competition that tests the neuroscience knowledge of high school students.  

The Brain Bee is open to kids ages 9th to 12th grade. The students who are participating will receive a packet of “study materials” containing variety of information they will be quizzed on. Some of the topics to be covered in the bee include: intelligence, learning and memory, emotion, sensations, movement, stress, aging, sleep, addiction, brain anatomy and neural disorders. Students will receive questions in a written and visual format covering the variety of topics. The quiz questions will be presented orally but there will be some visual queues as well. 

Traditionally, students competing in the Brain Bee would compete on an individual level but this year Max Planck has decided to have teams! Each team will have three students who will work together. The group will be able to collaborate and join their brainpower to answer each quiz question. There can only be a single, collaborative answer and it must be given within the allotted time frame. Schools are encouraged to send teams of three into the competition but individual students are more than welcome and will be assigned to a team upon arrival to the Brain Bee. All of the participating students will get a cool Max Planck t-shirt, a private tour of one of the labs and a yummy and brain healthy lunch!  The top three teams will get a gift card and the first place team will get to shadow a MPFI scientist for the day. What could be cooler than shadowing a real neuroscientist!?  

The MPFI Brain Bee will not only benefit the students but it will benefit their school’s science programs. All of the cash donations will be split among the schools that had students partaking in the Bee.  

The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience is an $94 million institute comprised of state of the art research labs. The facilities are some of the best in the nation and the scientists working here are some of the most brilliant minds in the world.  Help support the research and discovery of new treatments and advances in the knowledge of the brain. Have your child join the Brain Bee or make a donation to support this important cause!
