Google Science Fair 2012

How to enter

Google is looking for the brightest young scientists from around the world to submit interesting, creative projects that are relevant to the world today. The Google Science Fair is an online science competition seeking curious minds from the four corners of the globe. Anybody and everybody between 13 and 18 can enter. All you need is an idea. Geniuses are not always A-grade students. We welcome all mavericks, square-pegs and everybody who likes to ask questions. Simply upload your project here to win some life changing prizes.

Judging Process

The deadline for project submissions is on 1 April, 2012. All projects will then be judged by a panel of teachers and university professors according to the judging criteria. Towards the end of May, 90 regional finalists will be announced. Our judging panel will narrow these down to 15 global finalists. We will announce these names in early June, along with our Science in Action Award winner.

The 15 global finalists and the Science in Action Award winner will be flown to Google HQ in California, USA for our celebratory Science Fair event and the final judging round which will take place on the 23 July 2012. The finalists will present their projects before a panel of acclaimed scientists and tech visionaries. A winner will be selected from each of the age categories, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18. One of the finalist winners will be announced the Grand Prize Winner.

Creating your Project Submission with a Google Site

All entrants will use a Google Site to showcase their project submission. A Google Site is an easy way to create a website without having to know any computer coding. Your site will be automatically created with the official Google Science Fair template after you successfully complete the signup process. For detailed instructions on how to use Google Sites, visit the Help Center.
