Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We invited students from all over the DFW metroplex to participate in our seventh annual DFW Regional Brain Bee. The winner of our regional Brain Bee participated in the National Brain Bee, and if they win, they will advance to the International Brain Bee! Our Brain Bee took place at The Hockaday School in Dallas, TX from 3-5pm on Sunday, February 20th, 2022. Registration was free and open to all high school students. Participants were masked and completed COVID symptom forms at the start of the event to reduce risk of potential transmission.
