 Schedule details:

The oral competition will be conducted in the morning at 10:00 a.m., and it will consist of two rounds. The first round will include all competitors. Questions will be posted visually and read by one of the judges. Each participant will be given 60 sec to write her/his response on a card. The scorekeepers will collect the cards and read the answers out loud to the judges. Points will be awarded for correct answers as determined by the judges. After a series of questions, the people with the top three scores will go on to the final elimination round, which will consist of sudden death. Questions will be read until there is one person who has scored the most correct answers.  We will then wrap up the day with lunch and awards ceremony followed by an informal research discussion and possibly a hands-on brain dissection for those interested.
