From ICM: 10 December 2018:  “The International Brain Bee (IBB) is an international neuroscience competition for high school students. Its mission is to help students learn about the brain and its functions, to find out about careers in neuroscience and to dispel misconceptions about brain disorders.

ICM is thrilled to become the official host of the France Brain Bee on April 6, 2019. We will be working closely with the not-for-profit organization, Gifted in France, to involve several French high schools in the national competition.

Jacobo Sitt, ICM Principal Investigator, will be leading the involvement of ICM’s expert researchers who will help select the winning student on the day of the competition and who provide a training internship to help them prepare for the final competition.
