Over this past week, I chose one of my three problems to solve and have begun research for plausible solutions. Though I was sad about narrowing my options down to one, I am excited to embark on a quest for a solution to one of the world's biggest issues.
Having a 3M mentor to help is an incredible experience. My mentor, Dr. Jonza, has helped me become a much more global thinker due to his extensive experience as a a scientist in the real world. Also, with a mentor, I can share my ideas and receive instantaneous feedback about them. Read more

After considering my ideas, I’ve decided on one problem to focus on which was to continue my own original entry topic -- Proactively Prevent Drowsy Driving. When choosing my problems, I considered many factors including different solutions I came up, the importance of the problem, existing solutions.
My mentor Dr. Jesse Miller has been a great help to me! He is really supportive and guides me in the right direction. It’s really nice to have a real engineer to talk to about my project who gives me good advice. Read more

To focus on one research problem to start working on, I had three ideas in mind. All three were legitimate ideas to begin with, but the one that I believed to be both feasible and had the greatest impact on the world was my idea on hydroplaning.

I have been very busy this week and have had lots of fun so far on this project. I have been working hard on my scientist’s notebook narrowing my ideas down to one. I chose my original entry idea based on the same guidelines that I had made for myself last week, and I had added some guidelines, such as the availability of materials to follow through with the idea, and how interested in the topic I am. Also, if other solutions exist, how much of an innovation it would be compared to past solutions or ideas. Read more

It's been really good having a mentor to bounce my ideas off of. I really found her advice helpful. Narrowing down my list of problems to just one wasn't too difficult. I chose the problem that seemed most important to me. So far, I have accomplished a lot, building prototypes and doing research. I am really excited to start building my final project! Read more
