Arthur-Wrapping It Up

Hi Everyone!

The final event is just around the corner. I am preparing my props, going over my final presentation, rehearsing lines, and so forth, and I am super excited to travel to 3M in just 9 days!

Wow! I have come a long way from when I started back in June, and I feel like I am prepared for my trip to 3M. I have a lot planned, and hope that everyone watching will have lots of fun… But most of all, I want to inspire my generation, and encourage younger generations to enter the Young Scientist Challenge.

Peter - Too Much, Too Little Time.

Hey guys, this is my last blog post, so that's kind of sad :( But I've had an AWESOME experience this summer with my 3M mentor, John.

My favorite part... Well it's hard to say, everything I learned was so cool! But, my favorite parts would have been my weekly calls with my mentor, it was so fun to come to him every week and tell him about a change I made, or some goofy mistake I made. Read more

Things would also go wrong, my first few tests were plagued by electrical leaks which I have now corrected. Anyways, I have learned to do the best I can even if it isn't exactly what you planned.

Iris- Looking Back

Hi everyone, Iris here.

The best part of the process so far has been getting in touch with a few experts who are extremely knowledgeable in my topic. My mentor got me in touch with 3 different experts. When I had my first call with them, I was very nervous talking to an expert for the first time. I had earlier prepared presentations to explain my project and a list of questions for the expert. But after talking to them for a few minutes, they put me at ease, and I was comfortable talking to them. I was very relaxed for my next couple calls. Read more
