Google has just opened its second Science Fair, an online science fair open to 13- to 18-year-olds from around the world. In 2011, more than 10,000 students from 91 countries sent in their science experiments. Shree Bose, the 2011 Grand Prize winner, was named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year.

Young people may participate individually or in groups of two or three students. The deadline for submitting projects is 1 April 2012. A group of teachers and university professors will judge the projects according to these criteria.

Towards the end of May, 90 regional finalists will be announced. The judging panel will narrow these down to 15 global finalists and, in early June, their names will be announced along with the winner of the Science in Action Award. The 15 global finalists and the Science in Action Award winner will be flown to Google headquarters in California (United States) for the celebratory Science Fair event. The final round of judging will take place on 23 July 2013. Finalists will present their projects before a panel of acclaimed scientists and tech visionaries. A winner will be selected from each of the age categories: 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18. One of the finalist winners will be announced the Grand Prize Winner.
