Google is launching the inaugural Google Science
Fair. We have partnered with NASA, CERN, National Geographic, Scientific
American and the LEGO Group to create a new STEM competition which is more
open, accessible and global than ever before. We wanted to reach out to
educators prior to launch to let them know ³the Google Science Fair is
coming² and to extend an invitation to schools and teachers to get
involved early in what we hope will be a large global initiative.
The Google Science Fair is a global competition that any student aged 13 –
18 from around the world is eligible to enter. Students can enter as
individuals or teams of up to 3. There is no entry fee and registration and
submission will happen online. The deadline for submissions will be the 4
April 2011. The Science Fair will culminate in a ³once in a life time²
celebratory event at Google headquarters in California in July 2011 where
finalists will compete for internships, scholarships and prizes in front
of a panel of celebrity scientist judges including Nobel Laureates and
We want to celebrate and champion great young scientific talent and give
students from around the world the opportunity to compete for amazing
experiences, prizes, scholarships and internships.
We hope you are as excited about this upcoming competition as we are are!
