Discovery Education and 3M announced the 17th annual Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge, the nation’s premier science competition for students in grades 5-8. The competition offers young students the opportunity to compete for $25,000 under the tutelage of a 3M Scientist Mentor and earn the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist.”
The competition will focus on using science and imagination to solve everyday problems. Any student in grades 5-8 who wishes to enter the competition can do so by submitting a two-minute video communicating their solution to an everyday problem and the science that supports it, by April 21, 2015. Of the videos submitted, ten finalists will be selected to participate.
