Annual Nevada Brain Bee Competition
Nevada Brain Bee participant Aliya Farmanali invites High School students to participate in the upcoming competition to be held at UNLV Saturday, January 31st, 2015.
National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist Meadows School senior Aliya Farmanali has been actively involved in numerous extracurricular activites at Meadows and participating in Brain Bee is one of her intellectual road to excellence.
Aliya Farmanali is one of the contenders in the 2015 Nevada Brain Bee – a neuroscience competition for high school students. The winner of the Nevada Brain Bee will be representing Nevada to the National Brain Bee at Maryland University in March. The winner of the USA Brain Bee will then represent the USA in the International Brain Bee in Queensland, Australia in August, 2015.
The bee’s goal is to motivate students to learn about the brain, and maybe even pursue careers in topics such as intelligence, emotions, memory, sleep and diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
The International Brain Bee was formed in 1999 – and has had a growing fan base ever since, with now about 150 local competitions in 30 countries around the world.
Nevada Brain Bee Association (NVBBA) is a non-profit Association that organizes a yearly Las Vegas Brain Bee. The NVBBA is a local chapter of the USA Brain Bee, which is a regional chapter of the International Brain Bee (www.internationalbrainbee.com)
The unique neuroscience contest is free and open to any Las Vegas High School Students. The competition consists of answering neuroscience questions and demonstrating neuroscience understanding and proficiency. Its purpose is to motivate young men and women to learn about the human brain, and to inspire them to enter careers in the basic and clinical brain sciences.
