If yes then Google science fair is the right platform for you. The Google Science Fair is an online science competition open to students ages 13-18 from around the globe. We're looking for ideas that will change the world.

"For the past two years, thousands of students from more than 90 countries have submitted research projects that address some of the most challenging problems we face today," Sam Peter, a member of the Google Science Fair Team, wrote in a blog post. 

Last year's winners presented projects that dealt with the early diagnosis of breast cancer, improving the music-listening experience for people with hearing loss, and documenting the ecosystem found in water. 

Symposium on IRS Series - March 16-17, 2013

Symposium on
Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS) Series
March 16-17, 2013
JN Tata Auditorium
National Science Seminar Complex
Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore


On March 17, 2013, India will attain the milestone of 25 years of successful operations of Earth Observation services by the Indian Remote Sensing Satellites, ever since the launch of IRS-1A on March 17, 1988. The success of the Indian Remote Sensing Programme is due to the contributions of the many professionals in diversified fields of space technology development and its
effective utilisation by end-users for developmental activities. The integration of remotely sensed data with conventional systems for resource management and environmental assessment has proved to be successful and has further resulted in institutionalization of such technologies in user-domain. The User Ministries, Academia and Industry have made vital contributions in all the above activities. Various Professional Societies in India have also contributed substantially in the outreach programmes by periodical publications and conduct of seminars.

Yuri's Night India - April 12, 2013

Be a Yuri's Night Ambassador


Yuri’s Night is a global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space. Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of April 12, 1961, the day of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight, and April 12, 1981, the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle.

Yuri’s Night events combine space-themed partying with education and outreach. These events can range from an all-night mix of techno and technology at a NASA Center, to a movie showing and stargazing at your local college, to a gathering of friends at a local hangout.

In 2011, the 50th anniversary of human spaceflight, over 100,000 people attended 567 officially-recognized events in 75 countries on all 7 continents, while tens of thousands more watched the 12-hour live Yuri’s Night Global Webcast and participated online in the virtual world of Second Life.
