Do you have a student who has been working on a project to answer a science question?
Google has launched the second annual Google Science Fair in partnership with CERN, National Geographic, LEGO and Scientific American. The Google Science Fair is an international competition which encourages students between the ages of 13 to 18 to be curious, ask questions, and perform science experiments to answer those questions. Students are invited to post their science projects online so that they may compete for incredible prizes. For 2012, the competition also has a new “Science in Action” prize sponsored by Scientific American for the top science project that shows positive, local community impact.
In May, 90 regional winners will be selected from around the world. From this pool, 15 global finalists will be flown to Google headquarters in Mountain View, California to present their projects in front of a panel of esteemed judges. The judges will then select a winner in each age category (13-14, 15-16, 17-18), as well as a grand-prize winner.
The competition is accepting submissions until the April 1, 2012.
Interested students and teachers should visit the Google Science Fair website to learn more, access resources, and apply today!
