Are you a science-lover and aged 13-18 years?
Then you only have nine days left to enter the Google Science Fair.
The Google Science Fair is simply a teen online competition focussed on science ideas that will change the world. Anyone of valid age can enter, participation is free and the prizes are pretty damned impressive.
Past winners include:
- 14-year old Jonah Kohn with his project Good Vibrations: Improving the Music Experience for People with Hearing Loss Using Multi-Frequency Tactile Sound;
- 17-year old Brittany Wenger with her amazingly detailed idea for a Global Neural Network Cloud Service for People with Breast Cancer; and
- 14-year olds Bonkhe Mahlalela and Sakhiwe Shongwe for their plan to create Unique Simplified Hydroponic Methods.
Also, you should take a look at calendar of events put on in the lead up to the closing date. Simply fantastic online opportunities for young scientists to learn, and join the global science community.
