Fascinated by the human brain?
Are you interested in:
  • how our mind interprets our surroundings and makes decisions,
  • how our brain controls our muscles so we can move, and
  • how chemical imbalances in the brain may cause a range of different neurological diseases?
If yes, then consider joining the Bennies Brain Bee Club and participate in the University of Waterloo’s Annual Brain Bee Competition! The club will meet regularly to learn about the brain and prepare for the UW Brain Bee. The Brain Bee is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the brain and the importance of brain research. The University of Waterloo’s Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences annual Region of Waterloo Brain Bee is tentatively scheduled to take place in-person on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024. The event will feature some live demonstrations of neuroscience lab activities happening on campus, a multiple-choice quiz, draws for additional prizes, and cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners! The winner of the Waterloo Brain Bee will have the opportunity to visit campus and learn additional neuroanatomy using real human brain specimens. They will also advance to compete in the National Brain Bee competition.

When we meet
