The Winners Of The 2012 Google Scientific Discipline Fair

Twenty-one of the world’s brightest immature scientists gathered at Google’s headquarters inwards Mountain View today to celebrate their achievements in addition to introduce their projects to a panel of renowned judges at the Google Science Fair finals.

Chosen from thousands of projects from to a greater extent than than 100 countries, these top xv projects impressed the judges in addition to world alongside their breadth of topics: from cancer inquiry to vertical farming, 3D electronics to dementia. It was a tough decision, simply we’re proud to cite these 3 projects the winners of this year’s Google Science Fair:
  • 13-14 historic menses category: Jonah Kohn (USA)—“Good Vibrations: Improving the Music Experience for People alongside Hearing Loss Using Multi-Frequency Tactile Sound.” By creating a device that converts audio into tactile vibrations, Jonah’s projection attempts to furnish the hearing impaired alongside an improved sense of music.
  • 15-16 historic menses category: Iván Hervías Rodríguez, Marcos Ochoa in addition to Sergio Pascual (Spain)—“La Vida Oculta del Agua (The Secret Life of Water).” Iván, Marcos in addition to Sergio studied hidden microscopic life inwards fresh water, documenting the organisms that be inwards a drib of water, in addition to how those organisms influence our environment.
  • 17-18 historic menses category AND Grand Prize Winner: Brittany Wenger (USA)—“Global Neural Network Cloud Service for Breast Cancer.” Brittany’s projection harnesses the ability of the cloud to help doctors accurately diagnose thorax cancer. Brittany built an application that compares private exam results to an extensive dataset stored inwards the cloud, allowing doctors to assess tumors using a minimally-invasive procedure.


Each of the winners volition have prizes from Google in addition to our Science Fair partners: CERN, LEGO, National Geographic in addition to Scientific American. This evening, nosotros too recognized Sakhiwe Shongwe in addition to Bonkhe Mahlalela, from Swaziland, the winners of the Scientific American Science inwards Action award.

The judges were impressed alongside the character of all the projects this year—and past times the ingenuity, dedication in addition to passion of the immature scientists who created them. We applaud every contestant who submitted a projection to the 2012 Google Science Fair in addition to await forwards to seeing the innovations, inventions in addition to discoveries of immature scientists inwards the years to come.
