Here at Science Gallery, we're all about encouraging young brains to develop their curiosity for science early on, in the hopes they will go on to become next the generation of scientists and engineers to change the way we live. Our Science Circle partner and valued supporter, Google, shares this passion with us. So much so, they started the Google Science Fair three years ago to help make the groundbreaking discoveries that will change the future.
The Google Science Fair is an online science competition seeking curious minds from the four corners of the globe. Anybody and everybody aged between 13 and 18 can enter - all you need is an idea.
Geniuses are not always A-grade students. Google welcomes all mavericks, square-pegs and everybody who likes to ask questions. What's YOUR question?
Google itself was founded as an experiment - now it's your turn to change the world!
The award honors a project that can make a practical difference by addressing an environmental, health or resources challenge. Submissions should be innovative, easy to put into action and reproducible in other communities.
If you are chosen as one of the 15 global finalists, you will get to go to Google’s headquarters in California to present your idea in front of a group of panelists including a Nobel laureate and an astronaut. Not only do you get a chance to share your great idea on how to change the world, you’ll also be competing to win the grand prize: a National Geographic Expedition to the Galapagos Islands, a $50,000 scholarship, and an "experience" at one of the sponsoring organisations; Lego, CERN, National Geographic and Scientific American.
