An Online Science Competition by Google

Google has announced the first global online science competition: the Google Science Fair. Partnering with CERN, LEGO, National Geographic and Scientific American, Google wants to make young scientist the "rock stars of tomorrow."

From their website: "You may have participated in local or regional science fairs where you had to be in the same physical space to compete with kids in your area. Now any student with an idea can participate from anywhere, and share their idea with the world. You build and submit your project—either by yourself or in a team of up to three—entirely online. Students in India (or Israel or Ireland) will be able to compete with students in Canada (or Cambodia or Costa Rica) for prizes including once-in-a-lifetime experiences (like a trip to the Galapagos Islands with a National Geographic Explorer), scholarships and real-life work opportunities (like a five-day trip to CERN in Switzerland). And if you’re entering a science fair locally, please feel free to post that project online with Google Science Fair, too!

Entries must be in by April 4th, and semi-finalists will be announced by mid-May. Best of luck to your tween!
