THE COMPETITION IS ON
“So you think you’re a problem-solver? Great! Then you have what it takes for our 2014 Young Scientist Challenge.
Here are the basics: Everyday life is full of everyday issues, and our science for middle school challenge is looking for innovative solutions from students in grades 5–8. From helmets that detect concussions to using solar energy for water purification, past contenders have dreamed up answers and ideas that change the way we live.
So what sets the Young Scientist Challenge apart from other science for middle school competitions? It has the power to change lives – including your own. Ten national Young Scientist Challenge finalists earn exclusive summer mentorships with a 3M scientist, where they can work together on special assignments and explore a career in science. This also get the chance to turn their ideas into inventions that will help others. HOW? One lucky student will even win $25,000 and a once-in-a-lifetime trip with Discovery Student Adventures.
