Google Science Fair

In a special Hangout On Air with Google Science Fair 2015, join scientists from the California Academy of Sciences to explore the vibrant science behind the museum’s brand new exhibit Color of Life , which opens June 12 in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

Get a bird’s-eye view as Dr. Jack Dumbacher, the Academy’s curator of ornithology, broadcasts live from the museum’s scientific collections. He’ll share stories of birds who use brightly colored feathers to warn predators of their toxicity and how some rely on dazzling plumage to find and attract a mate. 

And curator of reptiles and amphibians, Dr. Dave Blackburn, will share how his research in the remote mountains and lakes of Africa has led to the ongoing study of mysterious color patterns found in little-known frog species—and how the Academy is working to conserve these threatened amphibian populations. Plus, get a glimpse at this fascinating new exhibit, featuring live animals, shimmering specimens, and hands-on interactives. 

Sign up to watch on this event page, post your questions using Q&A, then come watch LIVE from the California Academy of Sciences!

Friday, June 19, 2015 - 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 1700 GMT
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google Science Fair. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

For growing children, finding proper prosthetics can be an expensive and difficult process.

To address this, +Google.org gave a grant to scale the work of e-NABLE, a global community of volunteers who work together to create 3D-printed prosthetic hands and arms. Using #opensource  designs and new tools for sizing and fitting, their volunteer network will be able to reach even more communities in need.

3d printers can even print food so there's not a big deal in a prosthetic hand...it's been done...

Have astronomers discovered the brightest galaxy ever?

A "monster quasar" accounts for the light emanating from the newly-discovered galaxy, WISE J224607.57-052635.0, which shines with more light than 300 trillion sun-like stars: http://goo.gl/RMAH0D

Tomorrow... Can a Machine Learn? https://goo.gl/7Z1fvN

Machine learning. Artificial intelligence. Computational biology. We’ve heard all of these terms about the ways that computers can process information. But can a machine actually think and learn?

Come find out from Dr. Craig Nevill-Manning, Google’s director of engineering in New York. Dr. Nevill-Manning founded Google's first remote engineering center; has overseen the development of products including Google Local (now Maps) and Froogle (now Google Shopping); and directed Google.org's Flu Trends and Crisis Response projects. And he’s an expert on machine learning and computational biology.

Post your questions for Dr. Nevill-Manning using Q&A, then come watch live! https://goo.gl/7Z1fvN

O homem já criou muitas coisas geniais, mas isso aí eu não acredito ser possível. Os robôs, já fizeram muitas habilidades humanas, mas pensar como humano? Não! Essa habilidade só Deus conseguiu fazer; e em seres humanos!

Please join us on July 7th, at 5pm UTC, as we announce the 90 regional finalists of the fifth annual Google Science Fair in the Google shop! 

We challenged the next generation of young scientists, inventors, and innovators from around the globe with one question: “What will you try?” And if past endeavors are any indication - ending world hunger, solving the energy crisis, and helping Alzheimer’s patients, just to name a few - these 13-18 year olds might just change the world.

Kicking off Science and Education month at Google Shop, this half hour event will also feature a chat with a few very honored guests.

We hope you can join us, along with our partners, LEGO, National Geographic, Scientific American and Virgin Galactic, in celebration of these 90 brilliant and brave Google Science Fair finalists.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google Science Fair. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

This is your brain on magic.

https://goo.gl/y3XQgG

This coming Friday... What’s going on inside our heads when we see magic? How do our minds react, even when we know we’re being deceived?

Come watch a Hangout On Air with Dr. Susana Martinez-Conde, Director of the Laboratory of Integrative Neuroscience, and Dr. Stephen Macknik, Director of the Laboratory of Translational Neuroscience, at the SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, where they study various aspects of visual, sensory and cognitive neuroscience. They are members of the Academy of Magical Arts (aka The Magic Castle in Hollywood), the Magic Circle (UK), the Society of American Magicians, and the International Brotherhood of Magicians. And they’re the authors of “Sleights of Mind: What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals About Our Everyday Deceptions.”

Stephen and Susana will be interviewed by +Mariette DiChristina , Editor-in-Chief of Scientific American.

Post your questions using Q&A, then come watch live! https://goo.gl/y3XQgG

It's your turn to change the world.
Introduction
Google Science Fair is an international, online science and technology competition that encourages students between the ages of 13 to 18 to be curious, ask questions, and perform science experiments to answer those questions. In partnership with 
Virgin GalacticLEGO Education, National Geographic, and Scientific American, Google invites these students to post their science projects online so that they may compete for prizes, scholarships, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 

Google Science Fair 2014 launched on February 12. The project deadline for the competition is May 12.  The 90 Regional Finalists, Local Award winners and Scientific American Science in Action Award nominees will be announces in June.
