To help make today’s young scientists the rock stars of tomorrow, in partnership with CERN, The LEGO Group, National Geographic and Scientific American, Google is introducing the first global online science competition: the Google Science Fair. It’s open to students around the world who are between the ages of 13-18. All you need is access to a computer, the Internet and a web browser.
You must get parental or guardian consent in order to compete. You can check out the complete rules here. After April 4, Google will begin judging and will announce their semi-finalists in early May.
The semi-finalist projects will be posted on our online gallery, where Google will encourage the public to vote for a “people’s choice” winner. From their list of semi-finalists, Google will select 15 finalists to bring their projects to Google headquarters on July 11 to compete in the final, live event, where world-renowned science judges will select a winner in each age category, as well as a grand-prize winner.
Here’s an example of a great science fair project site to inspire you.
