Well, isn’t this a neat idea! Google is holding an international online science fair for 13-18 year olds. Participants have “the opportunity to win amazing prizes by submitting an awesome science project from January 11th through April 4th.” There is a live event streaming at YouTube beginning at 9 am and another video on how to enter the competition. Go to Google’s Science Fair page for more information and to sign up with your award-winning project.
I wish Google would do more events like this. Actually, if they were smart they would also do something similar but for web apps or new programs/ideas/software to keep their own competitive juices flowing.
