The winners of this year's Google Science Fair have been announced:
  • Jonah Kohn in the 13-14 age group (USA)—“Good Vibrations: Improving the Music Experience for People with Hearing Loss Using Multi-Frequency Tactile Sound.” By creating a device that converts sound into tactile vibrations, Jonah’s project attempts to provide the hearing impaired with an improved experience of music.
  • Iván Hervías Rodríguez, Marcos Ochoa and Sergio Pascual in the 15-16 age group (Spain)—“La Vida Oculta del Agua (The Secret Life of Water).” Iván, Marcos and Sergio studied hidden microscopic life in fresh water, documenting the organisms that exist in a drop of water, and how those organisms influence our environment.
  • Brittany Wenger in the 17-18 age group (USA)—“Global Neural Network Cloud Service for Breast Cancer.” Brittany’s project harnesses the power of the cloud to help doctors accurately diagnose breast cancer. Brittany built an application that compares individual test results to an extensive dataset stored in the cloud, allowing doctors to assess tumors using a minimally-invasive procedure.
Brittany was also the grand prize winner, taking home $50,000 in scholarship money, a 10-day trip to the Galapagos Islands, and an internship at one of Google's partner organizations.
