The winners of the 2019 International Brain Bee have been announced! We congratulate the National Champions, representing 28 different countries, for their participation and contribution to a wonderful IBB program.
The International Brain Bee was founded in 1998 by Dr. Norbert Myslinski with a mission to build better brains to fight brain disorders. Since its inception, the International Brain Bee has inspired thousands of students to study and pursue careers in neuroscience. The International Brain Bee promotes student engagement with neuroscience through a three-tiered competition: students start by signing up for a Local Brain Bee, the winners of which compete in their country's National/Regional Brain Bee. Every year, National/Regional Brain Bees send one representative to compete at the International Brain Bee world championship.
