Google Science Fair
Apr 1, 2012
Here's one for the kids. The 2012 Google Science Fair is now accepting entries from students aged 13-18 to carry out a scientific investigation into a real-world problem or issue that interests them. Students, either individually or in teams of up to three, pose a question, develop a hypothesis, and conduct experiments to test it. The entire submission process is online (and can be done in 13 different languages). 90 regional finalists (30 each from the Americas, Asia/Pacific, and Europe/Middle East/Africa regions) will be recognized; the top 15 get flown out to the Google HQ for the finals. Swanky prizes await, including scholarships and a trip to the Galapagos. Details here.
