Google Science Fair 2012


US search engine giant Google is once again looking for young scientific talent after the success of its inaugural Google Science Fair in 2011. Google Science Fair 2012, open to children aged 13 to 18 globally, calls for experiments to be uploaded online before being judged by an international team of scientific experts. Aspiring young scientist have until April 1 2012 to submit their entries.

The quality of applicants in 2011 was exceptional; research by the 17-year-old winner Shree Bose of the US vastly improved ovarian cancer treatment for patients who have built up a resistance to the common chemotherapy drug cisplatin.
