On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, Midwestern University will virtually host some of Arizona’s top high school students for the annual Arizona Regional Brain Bee, an educational competition similar to a spelling bee that focuses on neuroscience. The Arizona Regional Brain Bee is presented by Midwestern University in partnership with the BHHS Legacy Foundation.

This year, contestants will join University faculty and student organizers virtually in an online competition to test their knowledge of the human brain, how it governs human behavior, and the science that helps medical professionals understand brain function. The Brain Bee winner will receive a prize package and will compete virtually for the national Brain Bee title at an online competition held later in the year.

Midwestern University faculty and students will serve as judges, question readers, timers, and scorekeepers for the Brain Bee, using the book Brain Facts, published by the Society for Neuroscience, as the source text. Questions will run the gamut from identifying physical features of the brain itself to naming brain disorders and diseases to surgical and medical practices that modify neural behaviors.
