In its second year, the Google Science Fair is the largest global online science
competition that celebrates the curiosity and investigations of young scientists
Prizes include scholarships, travel experiences, personalized LEGO prizes, digital access to scientific archives for our school, and more.
The deadline for 2011 project submissions was on 4 April 2011. After this date all projects were judged by a panel of teachers according to the judging criteria. In early May, 60 global semi finalists were announced and their projects were posted online and open to public voting for a “People’s Choice Award”. The 60 global semi finalists were then narrowed down by our judging panel to 15 global finalists who were announced later in May.
The 15 global finalists were flown to Google HQ in California, USA for our celebratory Science Fair event and finalist judging round which took place on the 11 July 2011. These finalists presented their projects before a panel of acclaimed scientists including Nobel Laureates, tech visionaries and household names. A finalist winner was selected from each of the age categories, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18. One of the finalist winners (Shree Bose) was named the Grand Prize Winner.
