Google Science Fair for Kenyan teens

Posted by Administrator on January 14, 2012

Google is inviting Kenyan teens to post their science projects online so that they may compete for prizes, scholarships and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Google launched the second annual Google Science Fair, the largest online science competition in the world, on Thursday. The students can either individually or in teams of up to three people pose a question, develop a hypothesis and conduct science experiments to test it. The entire process should be detailed and submitted online, via a website template that participants fill out themselves.

Google is accepting submissions in 13 languages (Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Spanish and Russian). On April 1, judges will select the top 15 finalists, who will be flown to Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, for the live Google Science Fair final event on July 23, 2012.  At the finals, a panel of distinguished judges will select top winners in each age category (13-14, 15-16, 17-18).

Prizes include a $50,000 (Sh4.3 million) college scholarship from Google, a 10-day trip to the Galapagos Islands with a National Geographic Explorer or an internship at Google or any one of their partners. The competition is in partnership with CERN, LEGO, National Geographic and Scientific American.
