What is Battle of the Brains?

We’re passionate about engaging students in STEM topics. That’s why we created the Burns & McDonnell Battle of the Brains, which gives students in the greater Kansas City area the chance to earn $155,000 in grants by designing the next great exhibit for Science City.

The Battle of the Brains is an academic competition, but it’s really a platform to change the way kids see STEM. It encourages big ideas and a curiosity for the world around us. It tells kids, “STEM is fun. It’s for me. It’s for everyone.” Over three rounds, thousands of area students have explored their interests through the Battle of the Brains. The future is in their hands, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what they do.
