Kids in grades 5-8 invited to enter Young Scientist Challenge

December 26, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Discovery Education and 3M are looking for kids in grades 5-8 with innovative ideas about how science can improve our world. The Young Scientist Challenge asks kids to create a short video about how science could help solve challenges in the areas of transportation, health or community. Entries are judged on creative thinking and knowledge of science, not on production value of the video.

The top 10 students will receive $1,000 and will travel to the 3M Innovation Center in St. Paul, Minn., to compete for the grand prize of $25,000. Other entrants will win travel vouchers, and one student from each U.S. state will be awarded the 3M Innovation Prize.

Entry deadline is April 19, 2012.
