It's an online science competition for the students of age group of 13 and 18 from anywhere in the world, working alone or in teams. The Google is looking for extraordinary ideas, and eager to see what your child comes up with. This is a great opportunity for teenagers to explore ideas they're passionate about, learn about science, and maybe produce a world-changing idea. And the prizes are pretty great, too.
How to Enter the General Competition:
You may participate in only one (1) Entry Submission, either as an Entrant, Team Leader or Team
