The Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge is the nation's premier science competition. Students in grades 5-8 are invited to create a 1-2 minute video describing a new, innovative solution that could solve an everyday problem.
Encouraging students to share their passion for science, the video should communicate the science behind a possible solution to an everyday problem related to one of the following categories: How We Communicate, How We Move, How We Stay Healthy, How We Make A Difference - or come up with your own idea!
For additional information on the video topics, please visit the Video Topics page at http://www.youngscientistchallenge.com/video-topics.
Ten finalists will be chosen for their passion for science, spirit of innovation and ingenuity, and effective communication skills. Each national finalist earns an exclusive summer mentorship with a 3M scientist to complete a summer "innovation" assignment. The highest scoring finalist earns the title America's Top Young Scientist and wins $25,000 and a trip to Costa Rica!
Video entries are due annually in April
