The Australian Brain Bee Challenge (ABBC) is a competition for Year 10 students organised by the Australasian Neuroscience Society. Students 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 illness.
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, it’s value to the community, and promote careers in science and technology.
Congratulations to Claire Sharp and Aaron Lipovic on a marvelous achievement as they have been invited by the Australasian Neuroscience Society to participate in the NSW ABBC finals. Well done!
