Brain Bee



The International Brain Bee (IBB) is a competition for teenagers with the primary goal to motivate students to learn about the brain and to inspire them to pursue careers in neuroscience.

It was founded in the US in 1998 and has grown to over 175 local Brain Bee competitions in almost 50 countries around the world.

The culmination of this program is the World Championship held every year in conjunction with major scientific conferences. The IBB was established in 2018 as non-profit educational organization.  Its governing body consists of the Alzheimer’s Association, the American Psychological Association (APA), the Dana Foundation, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and the Society for Neuroscience (SfN).


The final round of the hungarian Brain Bee was held on 22 April, 2023.
