Congratulations QAHS Brain Bee participants

The Australia-New Zealand Brain Bee Challenge (ABBC) is a competition for high school students in Years 10 (Australia) and 11 (New Zealand) to learn about the brain and its functions, learn about neuroscience research, find out about careers in neuroscience and to dispel misconceptions about neurological and mental illnesses.  The program was started in Australia in 2006 to address a number of deficiencies in the public’s perception of science in general, and neuroscience in particular.  The ABBC provides current and accurate information on the latest advances in neuroscience research, its value to the community, and promote careers in science and technology.  Information about the Brain Bee Challenge can be found at
