Vote Now in the Great Google Science Fair

The Google Global Science Fair finalists have been announced. Vote to see who gets $10,000.

Back in January, we wrote about the Google Global Science Fair, a big global competition to "help make today’s young scientists the rock stars of tomorrow." All students between 13-18 years old around the world were eligible.

This week, the top 60 projects were announced, and you can actually vote for the People's Choice Award.


The winner of the People's Choice Award gets a $10,000 scholarship from Google. Not too shabby.

Like Michael Cote, our favorite climate adaptation specialist, I'm partial to this underwater energy-producing turbine project by Gavin Ovsak, a very bright young high school senior from Minnesota.
