Google is inviting aspiring young scientists from around the world to participate in the Google Science Fair 2012. The competition is open to anyone between the ages of 13 and 18.
Participants can enter on their own, or as part of a team of two or three; projects should be experimental in nature (rather than descriptive), and include a slide presentation and video. A complete list of the judging criteria is available at the site.
The prizes are seriously awesome. The grand prize will see the winner(s) going on a National Geographic expedition to the Galapagos Archipelago, a Google scholarship, a hands-on experience at Google, CERN, or Lego, a personalized Lego toy, and access to Scientific American digital archives. Prizes will also be awarded to 15 finalists.
The competition closes on April 1, so get started now!
