A message to all members of The Global Education Collaborative

Hello again GEC members -

I usually refrain from sending out a deluge of emails to our membership, but I thought that today's announcement by Google was worth sharing. Google is sponsoring an online global science fair in partnership with CERN, LEGO, National Geographic and Scientific American. The competition is open to kids around the world ages 13-18 and the prizes are amazing. Submissions are due April 4, 2011. For more information, visit the official web site here: http://www.google.com/events/sciencefair/. The resource section of their web site has some great materials related to their partners, using Google tools, and STEM education.

As I looked through the science fair web site, I couldn't help but think that this might be a great opportunity for GEC members. Individual students can enter, but teams of 2 or 3 students are also allowed. Wouldn't it be fun if teachers in this community found virtual science fair partners and worked to complete projects using online resources? I'll post this announcement in the discussion forum of the GEC in case people want to post requests for partners. 

Below are a couple of YouTube videos explaining Google's global science fair. Enjoy!
