The Brain Bee at MSU will consist of both written and oral tests covering the material found in Brain Facts. It will take place on Sunday, February 23, 2020 and all registered students can participate in the competition. Parents are welcome to stay during the course of the tests but only participants will be allowed in the testing room during the initial written portion.
All questions and accepted answers will be based upon information found in Brain Facts. Neuroscience research is constantly updating our knowledge of the brain and nervous system, but to make our competition fair for all students, only content covered in Brain Facts will be considered correct. Information based on other sources cannot be accepted.
