Are you interested in sharing your passion for psychology? Google is hosting a science fair designed to help young scientists from across the globe share projects that are relevant to the world today. In addition to gaining some valuable research experience, you also have the opportunity to compete for some impressive prizes. Grand prize is a ten-day trip to the Galapagos Islands and a $50,000 college scholarship! Finalist winner prizes include a $25,000 scholarship, and a "People's Choice Award Prize" of a $10,000 dollar scholarship.
The competition is open to students between the ages of 13 and 18. Students can complete their project on their own, or they may opt to work in groups of two or three.
In addition to having a "Behavioral & Social Sciences" category, students can also submit science projects in the following categories:
- Computer Science & Math
- Earth & Environmental Sciences
- Flora & Fauna
- Energy & Space
- Inventions & Innovation
- Food Science
- Electricity & Electronics
In order to participate, you need to complete the sign-up form. Your submission must be presented using Google Sites, and all participants are required to include either a slide show or video on the summary page.
Check out the sample project submission site to see how your project should be organized and presented and be sure to check out the official science fair rules to learn more about the requirements.
Whether you are participating in a science fair hosted by Google or your own school, one of the first steps is to come up with a project topic. Check out our list of psychology science fair projects for some possible ideas.
