Lake Forest College to host Chicago Brain Bee February 10

For the second year, Lake Forest College is hosting the Chicago Brain Bee—a neuroscience competition for high school students—on Saturday, February 10.

There are 68 students from 19 high schools registered for the daylong program, which will include tours of the new Lillard Science Center and a chance to meet current Lake Forest College neuroscience students and faculty.

“The program is anchored by the hard work of all 30-plus student members of the Lake Forest Chapter of Nu Rho Psi,” said Disque D. and Carol Gram Deane Professor of Biological Sciences Shubhik DebBurman. “They have been planning this event for months and will be present in full force on Saturday to ensure the program is successful on all fronts.”

At 3 p.m., the final round of the competition will be held in the Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel. This portion of the competition is open to the public and all are invited to attend.

The winners of this local bee will be invited to participate in the U.S. National Brain Bee competition. The winner of each national will compete in the International Brain Bee, which was founded in 1999 and is the world-wide neuroscience competition for high school students.
