A guest blog post from composer and sound artist Arran Poole, whose sound installation Otautahi features in our current exhibition, OSCILLATOR, which runs until Sunday 14th April 2013. Otautahi was inspired by Arran's experience of a string of over five thousand earthquakes in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, which decimated the city and lead to the deaths of almost two hundred people in February, 2011.
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!
