Virgin Galactic is proud to sponsor the Google Science Fair, a global online competition for students aged from 13 to 18. The competition brings together global partners including Google, Lego Education, National Geographic, Scientific American and Virgin Galactic, and inspires students to pursue their curiosity and foster their interest in science and technology.

The Virgin Galactic Pioneer Award honors a student who uses an innovative, hands-on approach to solve some of the greatest engineering challenges.

The winner of this award receives a US$15,000 educational scholarship, a year-long mentorship and a tour of Virgin Galactic’s Spaceship Factory in Mojave, California.

During this tour, the winner, along with a parent or guardian, have the chance to meet the extraordinary group of engineers turning the Virgin Galactic dream into reality as well as get acquainted with our spaceship, VSS Unity!
