Discovery Education and 3M announce the opening of the 10th annual Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge, for students in grades 5-8. The program offers young inventors the opportunity to be mentored by a 3M Scientist Mentor, compete for $25,000, and earn the title of “America's Top Young Scientist.”

Students in grades 5-8 can enter the challenge by creating a one to two-minute video communicating the science behind their big idea that could solve or impact an everyday problem. Ten finalists will then be chosen to participate in an exclusive summer mentorship program, where they will work closely with and learn from a 3M scientist.

All video entries must be submitted online at https://www.youngscientistlab.com/challenge no later than April 19, 2017. Videos will not be judged on production skills and may be recorded on cell phones or basic digital cameras. 

Timed to the Challenge opening is the launch of Young Scientist Lab, an interactive portal for scientific exploration, and new home to the award-winning Young Scientist Challenge. The Lab is a one-stop STEM destination for teachers, students and parents. It offers K-8 activities and standards-aligned lesson plans and interactive teaching tools to foster the next generation of scientists.
