With an intention to provide brilliant students with the right forum for displaying their talents, Google has launched an online science fair.
The Google Global Science Fair 2011 allows students in the age group of 13-18 years to submit their projects, discoveries and inventions. Students, who have internet connection and accounts with Google, can work unaccompanied or in groups of up to three.
The winner will be awarded with a ten-day trip to Galapagos Islands and $50, 000 in scholarship. In total, Google will award twelve prizes.
The online science fair has been launched in cooperation with the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN), National Geographic, the LEGO Group and Scientific American.
Launching the science fair on Tuesday, Google wrote in a blog post, "We believe that science can change the world-and one way to encourage that is to celebrate and champion young scientific talent as we do athletes and pop idols."
Existing entries from offline local science fairs will also be allowed when embedded into Google's app. All material must be submitted in English. Those who feel difficulty in translating their works into English can use Google Translate.
Young scientists have up to April 4, 2011 to submit their projects.
