Students from around the globe are being challenged to make a difference by taking part in the largest online science fair in the world. The Google Science Fair is back for a fourth year on 12 February 2014. The global online science competition invites thousands of students aged 13 to 18 from around the world to explore an area of science they’re passionate about and enter their projects online.
Students have three months to enter their projects to compete for incredible prizes, scholarships and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Last year’s Google Science Fair winners explored a new anti-flu medicine, a battery-free flashlight, banana bioplastics and a signaling system for emergency vehicles.
This year’s Fair is sponsored by Google in partnership with LEGO® Education, National Geographic, Scientific American and Virgin Galactic.
LEGO Education believes this is a critical calling to ensure we are developing the talent required to continue economic development and technological advancement for the betterment of society. The Google Science Fair is a great way to encourage and showcase how today’s student’s innovative projects and designs will help solve tough science and engineering challenges that we face today and in the future.
Be sure to check back frequently for the schedule of Google Hangouts which will feature world renowned scientists, showcase exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of cutting-edge labs and science facilities and provide access to judges and the Google Science Fair team.
