AAAS hosts 'Battle of the Brains' to choose area student for international competition

Outstanding high-school students from the Washington metro area will be quizzed on what they know about neuroscience during a Brain Bee on Tuesday, 24 February 2004, at AAAS in Washington, D.C. In a two-step process, local competitions are held between young men and women from North America to determine who is the "best brain" on topics such as intelligence, memory and stress. The winners will be invited to the championship at the University of Maryland at Baltimore in March during Brain Awareness Week, which is organized by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives. The International Brain Bee strives to motivate youths to learn about the brain and inspire them to pursue careers in biomedical brain research.

Alan I. Leshner, Ph.D., AAAS chief executive officer and executive publisher of the journal Science, will be the judge. The participating schools include Benjamin Banneker Academic High School and the School Without Walls High School in the District of Columbia. In Maryland, Landon School, Bethesda; Magruder High School, Rockville; Rockville High School, Silver Spring; and Winston Churchill High School, Potomac. In Virginia, Langley High School, McLean; Loudon County High School, Leesburg; and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Alexandria.
