The Google Science Fair is an online science competition seeking curious minds from the four corners of the globe. Anybody and everybody between 13 and 18 can enter. Do you have students, perhaps some who have participated in traditional science fairs, who might like to elevate their experimentation and presentation skills by participating in a leading-edge international competition? This is a great opportunity for middle and high students!
National Geographic is proud to be partnering with Google and our friends Lego, Scientific American, and the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) on this groundbreaking program, following an extremely successful inaugural year in 2011. We're especially honored to be offering one of the banner prizes, a scientific voyage to the Galapagos Islands! (Finalists will also have the opportunity to travel to Google Headquarters in California).
So, what kinds of projects is Google looking for?
...It could be a new take on particle physics, or game theory. It could be a cost-effective way to provide clean water to a remote community, or maybe a project like reducing the carcinogenic properties of grilled chicken (that was one of last year's winning entries). It should definitely be inspired! Everyone has a question. What's yours?
