Andrew D’Agostino, a senior at Shaler Area High School, recently competed in the Pittsburgh Regional Brain Bee and brought home two trophies.
D’Agostino competed in the regional competition at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Neuroscience and won 2nd place in the individual competition and 1stplace in team competition – even though he was a team of one.
The Brain Bee is a contest for high school students which tests their knowledge of the brain. The competition includes multiple rounds of questions in the format of a written test, fill-in-the-blank questions, and verbal questions.
As the runner-up, D’Agostino will serve as an alternate in the event that the winner cannot attend the National Brain Bee in April.
