Google is off and running with its 2018 Science Fair and students in Atlanta can get involved.
Google Science Fair is an online global competition designed to inspire teens around the world to solve real-world problems through the application of science, technology, engineering and math. Submissions for this year’s Google Science Fair will be accepted online through December 12th, 2018. A panel of judges from leading tech and STEM-related organizations will review submissions from across the globe and announce regional winners in early Spring 2019 and 20 global finalists in July. Students will be competing for a $50,000 grand prize scholarship, but runners-up and regional winners can also win academic scholarships and travel-based prizes from this year’s sponsoring organizations.
