RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Google has just announced an open call for entries to its third annual online Science Fair competition.
From Jan. 30 through April 30, 2013, students age 13 to 18 around the world will be able to submit their research projects online. In addition to a $50,000 college scholarship, the winner receives a $10,000 grant for their school, a National Geographic Expedition trip to the Galapagos Islands, and a hands-on experience with a Google Science Fair partner organization.
The theme for this year’s competition is “It’s your turn to change the world.”
In June, Google will announce the 15 global finalists who will be flown to Google’s Headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. There will also be a “Science in Action” Award, sponsored by Scientific American, for a project that addresses a social, environmental or health issue to make a practical difference in the lives of a group or community.
