Google Science Fair 2012

February 23rd, 2012

Google announced the new edition of their now annual Science Fair for 2012. Started last year, it is trying to stimulate the creativity of young people and to foster their natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge. It is a global online science competition for 13-18 year old students and last year it attracted over 10,000 students from 91 countries to submit science experiments.

If you are curious about the things around you (or know somebody who is) and are 13-18 year old, watch the following video, checkout the rules and start your own project to get a world-class prize: a scientific trip to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Explorer, unique scholarships and real-life work opportunities in iconic science centers of excellence like CERN in Switzerland. The deadline is April 1st, 2012. Good luck!

Wave – the next big thing from Google

June 2nd, 2009

A technology that promises to become the next revolution in Internet. From Google.

Google Wave has been presented at the Google I/O 2009. I was amazed when I watched the demo presentation, the features and functionality combined in such a simple and convenient way! And what is amazing for me is the fact, that the technology is as equally appealing for the teenager as it is for the corporate manager! And bearing so much potential for future uses, that it will change the way people communicate, just like Skype did. Have a look:
