Google Organizes Global Science Fair

Google is encouraging geeky teens to come up with their own science experiments as Internet giant throws out a science fair. Participants must be between 13 and 18 years of age and submit their projects (in English, please) on Google Sites on or before April 4.

A panel of teachers will select 60 semifinalists, which will be narrowed down to 15 groups who will attend the fair at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. The judges’ lineup consists of big names in the tech world, like Rolf-Dieter Heuer of European Organization for Nuclear Research (the guys behind the Large Hadron Collider), Google’s Vint Cerf (considered as one of the Fathers of Internet), and Nobel Laureate Kay Mullis.

The winners of the Google Science fair in three age groups will receive a US$50,000 scholarship, a trip to the Galapagos Island, and some gifts from LEGO and Scientific American.
