Brain Experiment Contest
October 11, 2011

The Dana Foundation is sponsoring sponsoring a "Brain Experiment Contest" for high school students in the United States. The challenge is to design an original human brain-related experiment. You do not actually do the experiment. Rather you write up a research proposal as if you were going to do the experiment.

Use your knowledge about the brain and the scientific method of inquiry to create a strong proposal. Be creative with your project!

Each classroom can submit only one experiment and there is a limit of one submission for each instructor. The winning experiment will receive a $500 prize. The deadline for the competition is January 19, 2012, and the winner will be announced in March, 2012.
