Google announced the winners of “Google Special Awards” at Intel ISEF 2010 Special Awards Ceremony. With apps from 17 project fields ranging from behavioral, social sciences to microbiology, judging these great projects was extremely difficult. Submissions like “bio-inspired photonic fuel cell” and “new way to treat waste water using fungus” showcased the ingenuity and imagination of the world’s next gen of scientists. Impressed with the caliber of the submitted projects, hours before the award ceremony, we decided to give some additional awards. In addition to three $10,000 category prizes, we awarded six runner-up prizes of $1,000 each. And since so many of our apps were in the Secret Change Agent category (an award for the project that has the most potential to positively impact society and make the world a better place), we selected two winners, who each received $10,000!,” noted Google.
