Google kicked off its inaugural science fair at a global level earlier today, inviting school students from all over the world to submit their science experiments. Similar to the Children's Day Google Doodle competition, submit your science experiments to Google by April 4 and stand to win a grand prize of US $50,000. Here's how Google Science Fair 2011 is going to work.
Google has partnered with CERN, National Geographic, Lego and Scientific American with this year's global science fair initiative. Google science fair is open to students from around the world interested in science aged between 13 and 18 years. A student can work alone on the science fair experiment or within a maximum group of three.
Google science fair applicants are expected to create a 2-minute video or 20-slide presentation of their scientific idea. Students will have to come up with an original hypothesis, present a case for it, test it in an experiment, and arrive at a conclusion which they then have to submit to Google's science fair section in order to enlist their idea.
After April 4, the semi-finalists will be announced by early May, Google said in a blog post. Apart from the Google scholarship of US $50,000 awarded to the global science fair winner, there's also a trip to the Galapagos islands with a National Geographic Explorer and a five-day trip to CERN, Switzerland up for grabs, in a total of 12 prizes Google's awarding in the science fair.
