The finalists for the Google Science fair have been announced, and let me tell you: Science Fairs have changed… dramatically.

The Finalists

The oldest finalist is 18, and the ideas are amazing.  Here are just a few of the ideas coming out of the 13-14 year old bracket:

  • Prosthetic Limb improvements

  • Robots that can process commands given in English

From the 15-16 year olds:
