 Sign up for the Google Science Fair livestream to meet the 90 regional finalists and their world-changing ideas! 
 
Please join us on July 7th, at 5pm BST, 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.

Many of you are reading this post while living in a city. And you can probably think of a ton of ways you’d like your city to be better—more affordable housing, better public transport, less pollution, more parks and green spaces, safer biking paths, a shorter commute... the list goes on!

Many cities around the world have already made a lot of progress in some of these areas—for instance, developing dashboards to measure and visualize traffic patterns, and building tools that let residents instantly evaluate and provide feedback on city services. But a lot of urban challenges are interrelated—for example, availability of transportation affects where people choose to live, which affects housing prices, which affects quality of life. So it helps to start from first principles and get a big-picture view of the many factors that affect city life. Then, you can develop the technologies and partnerships you need to make a difference.

So I’m very excited about +Sidewalk Labs​, a new company we’ve announced today. (The press release is at www.sidewalkinc.com if you want to read more).  Sidewalk will focus on improving city life for everyone by developing and incubating urban technologies to address issues like cost of living, efficient transportation and energy usage. The company will be led by Dan Doctoroff, former CEO of Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. Every time I talk with Dan I feel an amazing sense of opportunity because of all the ways technology can help transform cities to be more livable, flexible and vibrant.  I want to thank +Adrian who helped to bring Dan on board.

While this is a relatively modest investment and very different from Google's core business, it’s an area where I hope we can really improve people’s lives, similar to Google[x] and Calico. Making long-term, 10X bets like this is hard for most companies to do, but Sergey and I have always believed that it’s important. And as more and more people around the world live, work and settle in cities, the opportunities for improving our urban environments are endless. Now it’s time to hit the streets and get to work!
We're on the brink of a historic period for cities around the world. By 2050, the population in cities will double, intensifying existing socioeconomic, public health and environmental problems. At the same time, innovations in technology can be used to design communities that are more efficient ...

Incredibly inspiring and insightful: Astro Teller discusses the hardest part of the innovation process—the part where you come into contact with the realities of weather, physics, humanity, and much much more whose impact on your work won’t be predicted by a book or taught in school. These unexpected and unforgiving elements stand between you and the moment when your invention or company has made something in the world fundamentally different and (hopefully!) better. And they are what’s going to teach you and test you and carry you to the right answer (eventually!). You have to experience what it’s like to try something, fail, learn, and try again...relentlessly, dispassionately, creatively. Astro will share never-before-heard stories—and hard-earned lessons—from Project Loon, the self-driving car, and more. Google[x]—the semi-secret “moonshot factory” for new technology that sounds like science fiction—has gradually been opening itself up and making contact with the real world.

Solve for X is a community of individuals and organizations working to accelerate progress on technology moonshots.
Introduction
Solve for X is a forum to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life.

This combination of things - a huge problem to solve, a radical solution for solving it, and the breakthrough technology to make it happen - is the essence of a moonshot.

Solve for X is intended to be a forum to encourage and amplify technology-based moonshot thinking and teamwork.
