@3M Young Scientist Challenge #spon #YoungScientist

21 Mar

As a parent of a child in middle school, I am excited to generate awareness and increase submissions for the Young Scientist Challenge and bring renewed attention to the importance of STEM education using our social influence and hope you will do the same. 

Science is a big part of my kids and their school and at a recent award ceremony you should have seen how many awards were handed out in this subject. It was great to see so many kids enjoy science and the benefits that could take them far. 

When first launched by Discovery Communications in 1999, the Young Scientist Challenge had the same mission it does today: to foster a new generation of American scientists at an age when interest in science generally declines. In 2008, Discovery Education joined forces with 3M – one of the world’s most notable innovators – to cultivate the next generation of problem-solvers and give students the unique opportunity to work directly with 3M scientists.
The Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge is the nation’s premiere science competition for grades 5-8. Through the program, young inventors have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work closely with a 3M Scientist Mentor, compete for $25,000, and earn the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist.”

For more information on the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge, including submission guidelines, tips from previous winners and complete rules, please visit http://www.youngscientistchallenge.com. Submissions will be accepted through April 13, 2016.
