Google is not always evil, and they do have several projects which involve giving back to the society. One of them was the Project 10^100 where they invited people to share ideas which would change the world.
Today, Google announced the $10 million to the winners of the 10^100 project. They selected 16 big ideas from over 150,000 entries. One of the winners of the project was Khan Academy, a academy run by a single person which provides content online for free.
We had covered Khan Academy in the past, highlighting how it helped 200,000 students a month by allowing them to learn Science and Match on YouTube. Khan Academy will get $2 million from Google to support creation of more courses.
In addition to that, several other organizations won including FIRST a non-profit organization for Science and Engineering education, which won $3 million; Public.Resource.Org which strives to make Government more transparent and African Institute for Mathematical Sciences which provides quality education to African students among others.
