The 2013 Google Science Fair — an online science competition open to students around the globe ages 13 to 18 — kicked off Wednesday with those words. The ultimate prizes, to be awarded in Sept.: a $50,000 scholarship from Google, a trip to the Galapagos with National Geographic Expeditions, experiences at the world’s biggest atom smasher, and more.
Submissions to change the world are due in the next 90 days. And the youngest scientists can do that as well as their elders, Google said.
The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2013. In June, Google will announce a list of the 90 regional finalists (30 from the Americas, 30 from Asia Pacific and 30 from Europe/Middle East/Africa). Judges will then select the top 15 finalists, who will be flown to Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. for a live, final event on September 23, 2013.
