Upcoming Event: 2015 Brain Bee

All South Texas High School students are eligible to compete in the South Texas Brain Bee. The Brain Bee is actually an international competition. There is no entry fee. What you have to do is study a fact book, much like you would study words for a spelling bee and then compete, here at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio on February 7th.

The First Place winner from the San Antonio competition goes to the National Brain Bee at The University of Maryland (air fare, hotel and expenses for 2 are provided by the organization, so it’s totally FREE for the students). The National U.S. Champion competes in the International Brain Bee.


Registration has begun and the registration deadline is January 26, 2015. PLEASE GO TO THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE for more information and to register: www.brainbee2015ftlda.com
