The Google Science Fair is a global online science and technology competition open to individuals and teams from ages 13 to 18.
This year there were 11 regional finalists from India but only Arsh Shah Dilbagi made it to the global finals.

Arsh told to IANS that thousands of projects were submitted throughout the world as there was no fee to participate in the Google Science Fair.
Ninety projects were shortlisted by the judges for further consideration, and of the 90, five projects were from India.
"The 90 participants were interviewed online by the judges, and they selected 15 projects from nine countries, including India,"

Arsh is now the only participant from the Asia region.

Arsh will be leaving for California Sep 19.
There will be an exhibition round Sep 21-22, and results will be announced Sep 23.
Six awards will be given among the 15 participants.
