Do you know any curious kids who have a flair for science? If so, they could be the winner of the next Discovery Education 3m Young Scientist Challenge. The annual competition recently announced its 15th iteration, in which students in grades 5-8 are encouraged to embrace their love of science by creating a video explaining how we could solve a real-world problem that falls into the category of How We Work, How We Live or How We Play.
Evaluated on their creativity, scientific knowledge, persuasiveness and overall presentation, ten finalists will be selected to participate in an exclusive summer mentorship program working directly with a 3M scientist, culminating in a trip to the 3M Innovation Center in St. Paul, MN for the chance to win $25,000 and the title of America’s Top Young Scientist.
