Everyday life is full of everyday issues, and the Young Scientist Challenge is seeking your innovative solutions to help solve them. From helmets that detect concussions to using solar energy for water purification, past finalists have dreamed ideas that change the way we live. Tell us about your great new idea for the chance to meet fellow young scientists, collaborate with world-renowned scientists, and win incredible prizes.
STEM IN ACTION
To enter our video competition, students need to think critically about the world around them; identify an everyday problem relative to their lives; brainstorm real-world solutions using science, technology, engineering and math STEM principles; and produce a 1-2 minute video explaining their innovative solution. Prepare them for this authentic learning experience with engaging videos, interactives, science lesson plans and more which bring STEM to life. The Young Scientist Challenge gives students the opportunity to hone the critical skills they need for college and career success – including an exclusive summer mentorship with real 3M scientists to see STEM in action!
