Google Science Fair 2018 is back again and open for submissions! This year, we’re encouraging students all over the world to turn your thoughts into a big idea to make something better with science. Maybe it’s making something slower or faster. Louder or larger. Whatever it is, science is how you make things better and Google Science Fair is where you do it.

Every idea has the power to shape our world  Submissions close December 12th, 2018.

A good idea can come from anyone, anywhere. If you’re between 13-18, we’d love for you to join us and share your best idea using science, technology, engineering, and math. It doesn’t matter if you use pen and paper or a full-scale lab; it’s all about the idea and the thinking behind it—no matter how big or small.

What should you do next?

Start thinking up ideas. Go solo or grab some friends to join and dive into all the guides and inspiration we’ve collected to help you along the way. Oh, and check out the prizes—there’s way more this year!

Here are the Official Rules

Set them up for success:

Follow this link for Educator Resources.  Teachers and mentors play a huge role in Google Science Fair. That’s why we’ve created a full library of teaching materials and exercises focused on the problem-solving process. Flexible enough to apply to virtually any subject or teaching style.  The adaptable sessions walk through each step of the process, supporting skills like problem-solving, communication, and teamwork. Their flexibility can complement your existing lessons, so you can use them as a whole set or pick and choose what suits your class. Each session includes a presentation with teacher notes and worksheets that will help you make the most of these materials.
