Google is looking for the brightest and best, young scientists from around the world to submit interesting and creative projects! By entering the Google Science Fair, students ages 13-18 can compete for scholarships, LEGO prizes, and a National Geographic Expedition!
The deadline for project submissions is April 4th, 2011. In early May, 60 global semi-finalists will be announced and their projects will be posted online and open to public voting for a “People’s Choice Award”. The 60 global semi-finalists will then be narrowed down to 15 global finalists, who will be announced later in May. The 15 global finalists will be flown to Google HQ in California, USA for the celebratory Science Fair event and a finalist judging round will take place on July 11th, 2011. These finalists will be expected to present their projects before a panel of acclaimed scientists including Nobel Laureates, tech visionaries, and household names. There will be 3 finalists; one in each age category: 13-14, 15-16, 17-18. One of the 3 finalists will be selected as the Grand Prize winner.
Detailed instructions and tips for building project submission can be found in the Resources section of the Google Science Fair website!
