Gabriel - Invention Starts With Curiosity

Invention Starts With Curiosity
I’ve always wondered why everything worked, how it worked, and how we could augment this reality.  Even when I was 4 and 5, my favorite story was “How was the universe created?” I believe the most important question of all  is “Why?”

I entered this contest because I was intrigued by the dynamic of observation and innovation. A simple idea can make a big impact.  I wanted to express the importance of butting in and asking why. Read more

Naren - Opening Blog Post!

"Wow, I cant believe this! This is incredible! Oh wow, thank you so much!"  were the words I faintly remember saying, as I found out I was a finalist.

Brandon - First Blog

Hello everyone! I'd like to thank 3M and Discovery Education for having me in the Young Scientist Challenge. I'm happy to be in the top ten, and excited to get started on my innovation.

My interest in science was sparked by a great deal of factors. My parents definitely had a hand in my love for science. Being a doctor, my mother has taught me so much about medicine and biology. My dad is an engineer, so he gave me a ton of knowledge about crafting, building and inventing. The knowledge I have gained from my parents has served as a foundation for my invention. My teachers gave me endless opportunities to explore the world of science. Finally, as a child, I was extraordinarily curious. Exploring the scientific world around me was a way for me to satisfy my curiosity. Read more

Deepika - YSC Week 1: Opening Blog

Hello Science Enthusiasts!

It has been a few weeks since I received the much anticipated phone call from the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge (YSC), and I cannot wait to visit the 3M headquarters in October! I had my first discussion with my mentor Dr. Jonza yesterday. It was really inspiring to hear him talk about his inventions and research projects and how he was motivated to work in the field of science. I feel fortunate to be able to work with him as I create my new invention. Read more
