German Brain Bee: the German Neuro-Olympics

The German Brain Bee, also known as the German Neuro-Olympics, is a nationwide competition for high school kids ranging from grade 9 to 13, and is part of the international Brain Bee program. The contest is held in English language and consists of five stages: a short written test, a practical test in neuroanatomy, for which brain models and authentic human brain tissue is used, a diagnosis of a human disease based on videos and the case history, and finally two rounds of question by the jury. These interviews include topics such as intelligence, emotions, memory, perception, and neurological diseases. The winners of the national contest represent Germany at the international Brain Bee contest, which is held annually during an international scientific congress.

The contest was initiated in Heidelberg in 2011 and is organized since 2016 by the non-profit organization Deutsche Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade e.V. and its members who are students, Ph.D. students and lecturers.
