Brain research as a potential career

We help introduce secondary students to brain research, with the aim of sparking their interest and encouraging them to pursue a career in neuroscience.

We host the annual Australian & New Zealand Brain Bee Challenge (A&NZBBC) and facilitate work experience for secondary students with our collaborating organisations. We are also working with teachers to develop ways to increase brain research in the syllabus.

Secondary school teachers interested in providing opportunities for their students to learn more about the brain are encouraged to contact us.
