  1. 14-Year-Old Battles Trolls and Cyberbullies With Brilliantly Simple Google Science Fair Project

    Do you want to post that post? Right, but seriously, you're going to post that?

    People can easily forget that everyone online is a person, and often that means they don't think twice before posting something insulting or hurtful about someone. 14-year-old Trisha Prabhu decided to fix that with software that makes people give a second thought to what they're posting online, and it's working.

  2. Sixth Grade Girl’s Viral Science Fair Project May Have Plagiarized Previous Research

    I knew that baking soda volcano was too good to be true!

    Today in "tricky but nonetheless important news," the media might have been a little hasty in lauding the discoveries of sixth-grader Lauren Arrington. The 12-year-old's science fair project went viral for its discovery that invasive lionfish are capable of traveling into estuaries, but an adult biologist is reluctantly coming forward to say that information isn't new--in fact, he discovered it himself four years ago.

  3. These “Science Riot Grrls” Just Won The Science Fair Of My Heart [Video]

    she blinded me with science

    Few things make me happier than seeing little humans grinning over science projects. Here's the origin story: The young singer in this video came home from science class feeling stoked about the cool experiments she got to do (I know that feel, kid). She and her classmates had been singing a song about being "extraordinary." Her dad helped her write the rest. And thus, Science Riot Grrls was born.

  6. Google Science Fair 2013 Finalists Announced, Make Us Feel Tragically Unaccomplished

    Prepare to also feel incredibly old.

    First started in 2011, the Google Science Fair seeks to encourage young students around the world by offering them the opportunity to develop science projects and share their findings online. Today they announced this year's finalists, whose ideas are more than a little impressive. Remember: These kids are all in middle and high school. When I was in high school, my biggest accomplishment was being the drum major of the marching band. They're already so much cooler than I'm ever going to be.

  7. Hello Kitty in Space Won Not Only Our Hearts, But Also the Science Fair

    It Came From Outer Space

    Remember Lauren Rojas, the 13-year-old budding scientist who launched a Hello Kitty doll into space to test “the effects of altitude on air pressure and temperature”? The judges at her school's science fair liked her project as much as the Internet did: She was named one of the four top award winners at Cornerstone Christian School’s seventh-grade science fair and will go on to compete at regionals. Godspeed, Lauren. (via: Gizmodiva) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  9. Google Science Fair Winner Brittany Wenger Made a Neural Network That Can Diagnose Breast Cancer

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    Looking back on high school, I'm often surprised that I graduated with even a modicum of science literacy -- let's just say that my projects usually seemed a bit rushed, which is to say they were entirely completed the night before the due date. But for the teens who competed in this year's Google Science Fair, an annual competition that invites teenagers from around the world to digitally submit their science projects, I think it's safe to say that science is a blessing and an opportunity, and not a curse. Among this year's amazing contestants, grand prize winner Brittany Wenger, a 17-year-old girl from Florida, seems to be stealing the show -- and with her amazing project, a neural network that can diagnose breast cancer with 99.11% accuracy, can you really blame her?
