WOW #19:Doodle 4 Google
What are Doodles?
Doodles are known as the decorative changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists and scientists. Whether it is the beginning of Spring, Albert Einstein’s birthday, or the 50th anniversary of understanding DNA, the doodle team at Google finds artistic ways to celebrate unique events.
What is the ‘Doodle 4 Google’ competition?
Started in 2008, Doodle 4 Google is a competition open to K-12 students of U.S. schools to create their own Google doodle. This year, students where inspired by the theme, “If I Could Do Anything, I Would…”.
Is the public involved in the voting process?
Yes. YOU are now able to vote online until May 25, 2010 8:00 p.m. EST to select YOUR favorite doodle. You can choose one from each grade group. The students’ work is amazingly creative and inspiring! Here’s one of my favorites from the K-3 category. Be sure to read the creator’s explanation below. Good Stuff.
Super Fast Computer For Everyone
“If I could do anything, I would…” give everyone in the world a super fast computer and Internet. People could become friends. They could help each other. They could find the answers to problems together. They could have fun together. People will not go to war because they are friends.
