Google Science Fair 2011 – Unique Opportunity For Young Scientists!

When Google was created in January 1996 it was just a research project. It’s creators, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, were still students at Stanford University in California. Today, Google is the world’s largest Internet company and the “Google Guys” are well-known computer scientists, successful businessmen and two of the reachest men on the planet.

Google Science Fair

Now, there is an easier way for you to do something similar with your creative ideas! The internet giant has launched the world’s first online global science competition, giving all young scientists a unique opportunity to get exposed to the world and win some prizes that could never be any better for students.

To enter in Google Science Fair students need to be aged 13 to 18 and have a Google Account so that you can complete the form. They also need to have their parent or guardian consent without which entries will not be valid. Students can work on their own or within a maximum group of three.

If you are a teenager with an interesting idea you believe in, visit Google Science Fair website and submit your project. The deadline for submissions is 4 April 2011.

Judging criteria will focus on quality of the data, the writeup, and the significance of the concept for the project, as well as the quality of the two-minute video or 20-slide presentation that the students must produce for the project. As Google explained, entries will be judged on eight core criteria, which include the student’s presentation, question, hypothesis, research, experiment, data, observations, and conclusion.

Sixty semifinalists will be announced in early May and fifteen finalists (selected from three age groups -13 to 14, 15 to 16, and 17 to 18) will be chosen to participate in a live, in-person event to be held at Google headquarters in July. There will be three finalist winners, one in each age category, and only one of them will be named the Grand Prize Winner.

Notable organizations such as National Geographic, CERN, The LEGO Group, Scientific American and Google have partnered to make the fair happen and to provide lots of fantastic prizes that will be awarded to the 15 finalists, along with the Grand Prize winner and a people’s choice winner. The two category winners who did not win the Grand Prize will win a $25,000 scholarship from Google and Sponsor’s choice of Experience from CERN, Google, LEGO or Scientific American. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $50,000 scholarship from Google and his or her choice of experience from Google, CERN, Scientific American or LEGO and an amazing trip to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions.

So, all you smart young people with interesting and creative ideas, this is your opportunity to do something big for yourself and for this world! Don’t miss it! Check video Below for more info

The Suicide Series

A Houston native, Bill Thomas is a photographer known for photos of elaborate, morbidly humorous ways to commit suicide.

The Artist in his own words:

“The SUICIDE series attempts to deal with the taboo social-psychological content in an ironic way, looking at suicide from both serious and humorous perspectives. The photographs consist of self-constructed and directed tableaux in which I am seen committing suicide by a variety of outrageous means. I attempt to further the believability of the scenarios through use of the hyper-real information available from the 8″ x 10″ format, together with their presentation as large, 32″ x 42″ black and white prints.”

7 Centuries old Stone Houses in Iran

This is pretty impressive. These are houses in Iran that were allegedly built 700 years ago. I don’t know much about it but it looks like the houses were carved into stone, unless they molded them out of some cement like material 700 years ago. I would still not want to visit Iran, but these houses are pretty impressive.
