Google Global Science Fair 2011
California, Mar 31: There is a popular belief that falling of an apple sparked Isaac Newton to invent the Universal Law of Gravitation. The story may be true or false, but a simple idea, "Why should that apple always descend perpendicularly to the ground?" made him to think and later he described the world, how a universal force, gravity, applied to all objects in all parts of the universe.

All technological devices - a simple stapler to super computers - are developed from a mere idea. If you have any remarkable idea with you, the technology giant Google had set the stage for you. Google beckons the young scientists for the Google Global Science Fair 2011.
