The Google Science Fair is Coming Soon

Through an announcement in the Google Certified Teachers discussion group I've learned that on January 11, 2011 Google will kick-off a global science fair. There weren't that many details included in the announcement, but I'll pass along what I do know.

The focus of the Google Science Fair is on STEM projects. The Google Science Fair will be open to 13-18 year old students. Students can enter individually or in small teams. The focus of the Google Science Fair is on STEM projects. Google's partners in this project include National Geographic, CERN, NASA, Scientific American, and LEGO. Teachers can register now to receive free resource kits, bookmarks, stickers, posters, and notification when registration for the Google Science Fair opens.
