Google is holding a science fair. According to the contest website, the search-engine giant is "looking for the brightest young scientists from around the world to submit interesting, creative projects that are relevant to the world today."

The contest is open to anyone in the world who is aged 13-18. Contestants can work alone or in teams, and who knows, maybe you and your project could win the fabulous Grand Prize which includes a $50,000 scholarship, AND a 10-day expedition to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions (not to mention the opportunity to spend 3 days at CERN or at the Google research site in Zurich)! Geez Louise, these really are grand prizes. It'd be so cool to win.

So, if you think you have a science project that could wow the judges, you should definitely enter. All the information and details you need can be found at the contest website. You have until the April 4, 2011 to enter. Good luck!

Do it! I really enjoyed my science fair days. And the prizes are mind-blowing! Do you think I could still pass for 18??
