Google: Supporting budding scientists

You may not be aware that Google spreads it’s influence far and wide. They are among the top three global investors in renewable energy, make sizable investments in space exploration, and work to digitize historically significant art and literature. Google does all of this while maintaining status as the largest online presence, and developer of the most used mobile operating system in the world.

Google has also sponsored it’s own science fair since 2012 targeted to young scientists from 13-18 years of age. The fair exists to promote the best scientific ideas from the best young minds around the world. In search of young mind that will work to change the world. Energy, medical science, transportation, materials… you name it and some young mind is out there working on it.

Having been hugely involved in horticulture (hydroponics), paleontology, and geology in my early teens I whole heartedly commend their efforts to inspire and support the next generation of great scientific minds.
