Brain Bee

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 Brain Bee. Every year, National Brain Bees send one representative to compete at the International Brain Bee world championship.

Here is the Portola High School chapter. In this club, we will help get students prepared for the local, national, and international brain bee competition, provide students digital surgery experiences, give members insights into the branches of the medical field, raise their awareness of health-related disorders, guide them to discover new interests, and eventually deepen their current understanding of the specific subject.
