Enter the Young Scientist Challenge
Submitted By Nima Thananjeyan
The 2012 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge is now officially open for entries!
Students in grades 5 - 8 can enter for a chance to win $25,000, a trip to 3M's global headquarters to work alongside leading scientists, and the coveted title of America's Top Young Scientist.
Ten finalists will have an exclusive opportunity to work directly with a 3M scientist during a summer mentorship program. Each pair will connect virtually and work through an original project that the finalist will present at the final event in October.
Follow these three easy steps to enter:
1. Parents submit an online consent form at www.youngscientistchallenge.com
2. Parents fill out a registration form and choose a username/password.
3. Students login to upload a quick 1-2 minute science video about a possible solution to an everyday problem.
Deadline for submissions is April 19.
