Do you ever wonder what determines intelligence? How male and female brains differ? Why we need sleep? Join the AZ Regional Brain Bee competition and test your knowledge of the brain against other high school students.

The winner of the Arizona Regional Brain Bee will receive a $2,000 scholarship toward any Midwestern University program (campuses in Glendale, AZ; and Downers Grove, IL), plus reimbursement for expenses to attend the National Brain Bee (up to $900).

The Brain Bee begins at 5:00 pm and will last until approximately 9:30 pm with a break for pizza included. To participate, return the registration flyer by January 30, 2015.
