At midnight last night we officially closed the submission window for the first Google Science Fair. We have been thrilled by the positive response from students around the world, and we are happy to announce that we received over 7,500 entries from more than 10,000 young scientists in over 90 countries around the world.

The judging has already begun and we are seeing some truly fantastic projects. Students are tackling interesting, important problems -- from treating cancer and preventing tsunamis to monitoring ocean erosion -- and presenting their findings in engaging and creative ways. The judges have a tough job ahead of them!
Keep an eye on google.com/sciencefair for the announcement of the 60 global semi-finalists on May 9 and get ready to vote for the People's Choice Award!
