It’s your turn to change the world

The Google Science Fair 2013 has now launched. In partnership with CERN, National Geographic, LEGO and Scientific American, the third annual Google Science Fair is an international competition which encourages students between the ages of 13 to 18 from all over the world to perform science experiments or create engineering projects to submit online in order to compete for prizes, scholarships and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Previous winners have tackled cancer diagnosis and treatment, figured out more efficient ways to farm and explored the natural world around them.

The competition is accepting entries from now until April 30 2013. In early June, 90 regional winners will be announced, representing the best projects from the Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa and Asia/pacific. From this pool, 15 global finalists will be chosen in late June to come to Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, in September to present their projects in front of a panel of esteemed judges. From these 15 finalists, we will select a winner in each category (13-14, 15-16, 17-18), as well as a grand-prize winner.

Prizes this year include scholarships from Google, a 10-day trip to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions, an experience at Google, CERN or LEGO and a grant. 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 winners’ school will be acknowledged with a “Celebrate the School” Award.

The competition is accepting submissions until April 30, 2013. Interested students and teachers should visit to learn more, access resources, and get involved today!
