We have talked quite a bit in the past, such as in this story, about Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) giving back. The company has done its part in helping people all over the world, such as by offering scholarships to students.
This time around, we want to talk about the Google Science Fair. If you don’t know anything about this event, you can learn more by visiting its official website here. As you continue to pick up more and more details, you will find that this event is something the company, as well as its many participants, look forward to every year.
Recently, the company published this blog post as an update to where this event stands right now: Meet 15 Finalists and Science in Action Winner for the 2013 Google Science Fair
For those who were named a finalist in the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) science fair, this is sure to be a life altering event. While there is only going to be one winner, it is safe to say that every participant has learned quite a bit along the way.
Here is more on how the event has unfolded:
“Creating a world-class science project is no easy task, but this year thousands of 13-18 year olds from more than 120 countries submitted their project to the third annual Google Science Fair. After further judging and deliberation, today we’re announcing the 15 finalists from our top 90 regional finalists, as well as the winner of the Scientific American Science in Action Award.”
At this point, Google is down to only the best of the best ideas. This is when things really begin to heat up.
What is next? At this point, all 15 finalists are going to meet up at Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) headquarters on September 23, 2013. At this point, each and every one will have the chance to present their project to an “international panel of esteemed scientists for the final round of judging.”
Everybody wants to come out a winner, not just because of the recognition but also because of the prize. The winner will receive a “10-day trip to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions, $50,000 in scholarship funding and more.” As you can see, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is not skimping on the prize.
This is just another example of how Google is helping to shape the future.
