The Google Science Fair awards young scientists for science and technology projects, and it’s open to children aged 13 to 16 all over the world. (It’s like Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, but real.) Kids from a number of countries are currently developing the latest-and-greatest products, and the tech giant has chosen 16 global finalists.
Some of the projects kids came up with include:
- Styrofoam filters that pull out pollutants (Ashton Cofer, 14; Luke Clay, 14; Julia Bray, 14, from the U.S.)
- Paint-on power (Marion Pang Wan Rion, 18; Joy Ang Jing Zhi, 18; Sonia Arumuganainar, 18, from Singapore)
- ExoHeal, utilizing neuroplasticity to rehabilitate stroke patients and cure hand paralysis (Zain Samdani, 16, from Saudi Arabia)
- Fractal-inspired chitosan and carbon nanoparticle-based biocompatible sensor for wound management (Anushka Naiknaware, 13, from the U.S.)
The finalist ceremony takes place on September 27, where all of the kids will be recognized for their work and dedication.
I don’t know about you, but I’m seriously impressed.
(If you don’t know what that means, you’re not alone. I had to Google it.) Seeing this, though, I can’t help but hope that these kids’ schools—and every other school in the U.S., for that matter—focuses enough attention on science and technology in the classroom. There are plenty of science-teaching tools available; it’s just a matter of whether districts, superintendents, and educators use them.
What Do You Think?
Are our schools focused enough on science and technology? Could we do more?
Two Brazilian students have made a huge scientific breakthrough—and at the same time, teens from the U.S., South Africa, Singapore and Zambia are creating their own breakthroughs.
