Established in 2011, the German Brain Bee or Deutsche
Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade is a member of the International Brain
Bee Program, which spans more than 30 countries and consists of more
than 150 annual contests across six continents. The German Brain Bee is
currently organised by the “Deutsche Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade
e.V.” and by students/senior scientists of the University of Heidelberg.
Our work is not only supported by our local organising team, but also by
the Biology-Olympiad and Jugend-Forscht coordinators, as well as by the
German Neuroscience Society (NWG), which enabled us to spread
information about our competition among schools across Germany.

The International Brain Bee
The winner of today’s competition, the National German Brain Bee
Champion, will represent the Republic of Germany at the 2016
International Brain Bee Championship held in conjunction with the
Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), Copenhagen,
Denmark in July. The German Champion and one parent will each receive
a 200€ stipend for roundtrip travel and 600€ toward five days of
accommodation, meals and group activities with the other national
champions from around 25 nations worldwide. More information is

Deutsche Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade e.V.
The non-profit organization Deutsche Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade
or DNO e.V. was founded in 2015 and is currently based in Heidelberg,
at the Spinal Cord Injury Center. The board consist of 8 members:
Head: Ina K. Simeonova
Head: Dr. Beatrice Sandner
Treasurer: Dr. Julianne McCall
Secretary: Nathalie Tisch
Committee Member & Cash Auditor: Catarina Luís
Committee Member: Ionut Dumitru
Committee Member: Dr. Tiziana Cesetti
Committee Member: Dr. Frauke Leitner
Our purpose is educational: we aim at spreading knowledge about the
brain and about the nervous system, combining it with the thrill of a
competition, with interaction between high school students and
scientists and with recreational activities, such as funny experiments.
With this, we would like to support young, motivated and talented
students and to offer them insights into biomedical research. Our goal is
also to make the Neuroscience-Olympiad known in Germany. Following
the example of other countries and other competitions, such as the
Biology- and Mathematics-Olympiads, we plan to establish local
competitions across Germany within the next few years in order to
reach a larger number of students.
Any financial support via a donation to our non-profit organization
would be warmly welcome and would help us during our expansion:

Selected Interviews of Former Participants
„Ich würde den Wettbewerb jedem absolut weiterempfehlen. Auch wenn es komisch klingt, so
lohnt sich die Teilnahme gerade wegen der Lernerei; Ich begegnete einem neuen Themengebiet
der Humanmedizin, hatte die Möglichkeit jenes intensiv zu bearbeiten und verbesserte
desweiteren noch meine Lerntechnik und mein Erinnerungsvermögen. Noch nie zuvor war ich
mit einer solchen Fülle von Informationen konfrontiert, folglich übte sich das Erarbeiten von
Lernpraktiken selbstverständlich positiv aus auf andere Bereiche, wie der Schule. Aber ebenfalls
am Wettbewerbstag, obwohl ich wahrscheinlich selten in meinem Leben so aufgeregt war,
haben die Organisatoren durch ihr sympathisches Auftreten und einen abwechslungsreichen
Ablauf eine entspannte Atmosphäre kreiert. Insgesamt war es eine wunderbare Erfahrung.“
„Einer der besten Erfahrungen, die ich je gemacht habe!!!“
„Der Wettbewerb hat mich tatsächlich motiviert, mich näher mit Naturwissenschaften zu
beschäftigen. So konnte ich annähernd einen Einblick davon erhalten, wie es ist unter Druck zu
arbeiten und viel auswendig zu lernen, was für ein Medizinstudium wichtig ist. Außerdem habe
ich mich später auch noch mit Themen, die Bestandteil des Wettbewerbs waren, auch in der
Schule auseinander gesetzt. Zum Beispiel bin ich während des Lernens auf die CJD gestoßen,
dessen Ursache die Scrapie-assoziierten Prionproteine sind, und habe eine Hausarbeit zu diesem
Thema in der Schule geschrieben.“
„Spaß hat er mir auf jeden Fall gemacht, vor allem auch der Fakt, dass man die Möglichkeit
hatte zahlreiche weitere an Biologie und Medizin interessierte junge Menschen zu
treffen. Weiterempfohlen habe ich ihn sogar schon an meiner Schule und ja ich würde ihn auch
noch weiter empfehlen.“
Previous German Brain Bee Champions
2015: Leandra Benz
To date, Leandra Benz is in 11th grade at the Stromberg Gymnasium
Vaihingen an der Enz, as was Mara Schubert, our 2014 winner. At
the end of her 10th year of school, Leandra represented Germany at
the International Brain Bee Competition in Cairns, Australia - „Im
Rückblick fühlt sich die Teilnahme am International Brain Bee wie
ein Traumgeschehen an“.
2014: Mara Schubert
From Oberriexingen, Mara is involved in many activities in addition
to choosing a challenging school science course. She is active in the
German Lifeguard Association, plays flute and saxophone, and
practices with a gymnastics team. She represented Germany at the
IBB competition in Washington, DC, USA.
2013: Lukas Schick
From Neckargemünd, Lukas is a student of Helmholtz-Gymnasium
Heidelberg. He is also a graduate of the "Hector-Seminar", a special
program for science. He represented Germany at the International
Brain Bee in Vienna, Austria.
Selected Interviews of Participants’ Parents
„Unserer Meinung nach, sind solche Wettbewerbe äußerst didaktisch sinnvoll. Durch
derartig neue Anforderungen, in diesem Fall das Lernen von einer unglaublichen
Masse an Informationen, kommt es zum Erwerb von neuen Kompetenzen. Es wird
damit gearbeitet mit Stress umzugehen, seine Zeit sinnvoll einzuteilen und wie man
grundsätzlich viel lernen kann, so dass jenes auch lange im Gedächtnis hängen bleibt.
Auf lange Sicht förderte der Wettbewerb den Ehrgeiz und das Erinnerungsvermögen.
Zu beachten bei solchen Wettbewerben ist, dass die Initiative oder die allgemeine Lust
an der Teilnahme wirklich vom Kind ausgeht und nicht durch das soziale Umfeld,
folglich Lehrern oder Eltern, aufgezwungen wurde. Falls dies der Fall sein sollte,
verfehlt der Wettbewerb seinen eigentlichen Sinn.“
„In meinen Augen hat der Wettbewerb meine Tochter in der Auswahl ihres
Studienganges Medizin mehr als bestärkt und nachhaltiges Interesse an den
Neurowissenschaften geweckt.“
2012: Sonia Amontova
Having lived in Japan, Russia, the US, China Switzerland, and
Germany, Sonia now lives in the UK, where she was accepted to
study at Cambridge University. She represented Germany at the
IBB in Cape Town, South Africa.
2011: Katarina Zimmer
From Rothenberg-Finkenbach, Katarina is currently a student of
University College London, where she studies Natural Sciences.
She is also the founder of the English National Brain Bee
competition. Katarina represented Germany at the International
Brain Bee in Florence, Italy.

Our Generous Sponsors
Expansion Across Germany: Local Competitions
Due to the positive feedback that we received - both from students and
from their parents, since a couple of years we have been considering the
option to expand, in order to give the possibility to more students to
participate: this idea turned into a real plan!
We started to recruit organising teams for local competitions in three
additional locations: Berlin, Frankfurt and Bonn – and we would love to
further expand, step-by-step, in the next years.
The principle is inspired by the Biology-Olympiads: local competitions will
take place in several cities several weeks before the final competition.
The first 10 to 15-placed students will be granted a spot and appropriate
travel grants to participate to the final national competition, which will
possibly rotate location every year.
You are welcome to join our project!
In this ongoing adventure the energy and motivation of young students
represents the driving force that make such an event happen!
Some of former German Brain Bee participants have already joined our
organising committee and started to establish local competitions in
Berlin and Frankfurt, respectively.
We are more than happy to welcome and supervise all students, who
would love to support our project!
