2. Brain Bee: A neuroscience competition for students interested in the brain and its functions. Local, national, and international levels offer you the chance to advance and showcase your knowledge.

3. BioGENEius Challenge: If you're interested in biotechnology, this competition allows high school students to showcase their research and compete for scholarships.

4. Science Olympiad: A variety of contests in several science domains, including Anatomy & Physiology, Disease Detectives, and Cell Biology.

5. National Medical Quiz Bowl: Hosted by different universities, this is a medical trivia competition that tests your knowledge on various pre-med subjects.
