Google Science Fair

The Google Science Fair is back for 2013!

What’s it all about? This online science competition in partnership with CERN, LEGO, National Geographic and Scientific American which is open to young people aged 13 to 18 from around the world – working as an individual or in a team of up to 3. It offers students the chance to explore an area of science that they're passionate about - and be in with a chance of winning life-changing prizes!

How do students take part? Students have 3 months to come up with a winning idea and complete their project before the 30 April deadline. All they need to do is visit and register, then they can get started. This year we’ve included a wealth of resources designed to help you engage your students in the competition and science in the classroom.

Once in a lifetime prizes! Prizes include scholarships from Google, a 10-day trip to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions along with an experience at Google, CERN or LEGO
In addition, this year we will award a Science in Action prize, sponsored by Scientific American, awarded to a top science project that has shown positive, local community impact and the potential to scale in other parts of the world. The public will have the chance to vote for the most Inspired Idea and the winner's’ school will be acknowledged with a Celebrate the School Award.

It's your turn to help a student change the world – get started at
