GOOGLE SCIENCE FAIR

Google wanted to make their second Science Fair bigger and better. We worked closely with Google to turn it into a global event that reached far beyond Mountain View.

Throughout the weeklong event, we created digital and physical experiences that would keep the contestants, their families, and VIP attendees entertained and informed.
