Who We Are

What is betabrain?

The concept of betabrain was developed to inspire students to strengthen their critical thinking and team building skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics through the use of hands-on problem-solving challenges. The betabrain program seeks to improve students’ understanding of the value of scientific studies and encourage them to consider future careers in science and engineering. The organizers of betabrain are committed to supporting the next generation of scientists, engineers, and business leaders by providing a collaborative teamwork experience.

The 2015 theme: A zombie apocalypse is taking over Bloomington/Normal!  Groups of survivors will band together to help prevent the spread of the zombie virus, and even find a cure for those infected.

What We Do

We believe that one of the best ways to engage students in science and technology is to have students inspire each other through real world applications of science and technology.  To this end, dedicated Unit 5 staff members have collaborated with local universities, businesses, and each other to create exciting opportunities for our students.
