The ABBC is a nationwide competition for Year 10 science students to learn about brain function, neuroscience research and to explore careers in this field. Fourteen of our students chose to participate in Round 1 of the competition. This required intense research and study of neuroscience literature, followed by an online quiz. Based on their performance, four of our students have been invited to participate in the Regional Finals where they will compete individually and in a team against other schools to determine the State Champion(s). They will also have the opportunity to spend the day touring university facilities, meeting research scientists in neuroscience and attending lectures. Congratulations!
