Students, parents, teachers: the Google Science Fair’s deadline is April 4. Scientific American is a media partner, and I am a judge. Here are a few quick reminders.

Students who have registered : Please remind your parents/guardians to respond to the e-mail that Google sent when you signed up. If you didn’t get the e-mail, your parent or guardian can send it to this link. If your parent or guardian doesn’t have e-mail, Google will accept a hard copy of the consent form. Go here to download the PDF. You can then scan the completed form and e-mail it here. Last, please make sure your project site and any supporting presentations and videos are public, and so can be viewed by the judges.

I can’t wait to see the entries!
