Girl Power Prevails at First Ever Google Science Fair
12 July 2011 4:31 pm
The votes are in: Google announced the three winners of its (and the world's) first online international science fair on Monday night, before a crowd gathered at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California. Three American girls won: 13-year-old Lauren Hodge, 16-year-old Naomi Shah, and 17-year-old Shree Bose. Grand Prize winner Bose also received a $50,000 scholarship, a trip to the Galápagos, and an internship at CERN. The contest drew more than 7500 entries from 90 countries, but 11 of the finalists were American.
*Due to an editing error, the number of finalists who were women was misreported in this item as 11. The correct number is six. Eleven of the finalists were American.
