Greetings, Science Enthusiasts!
I’ve always been interested in nature and science. One of my greatest joys as a young child was coaxing Painted Lady butterflies to land on my fingers, and cupping flashing fireflies in my hands.
This joy led me to my first science project when I was eight years old, titled “Butterflies in Space” -- a comparison of caterpillar development on Earth and on the International Space Station. Read more

Ever since Discovery Education and 3M announced that I was a finalist, I have come up with possible problems we face that I could solve as my final project. I narrowed the list down to three problems, by choosing the ones I was most interested in solving. I also took into consideration the time I had and the scope of impact of my solution. I eliminated the ones that addressed only a limited amount of the population. I eliminated the ones that did not have a large economical impact as well. Read more

Hey everyone–Amulya here!
Over the past week, I’ve been making so much progress. I’ve been working on turning my dream of making my program into an app a reality, as well as figuring out 3M materials to utilize in my invention. I have so many ideas!
To be honest, it has been really challenging to separate stretch goals from realistic ideas. There are so many different ways I could go, so it’s hard to have a few realistic goals! Read more

Hi! my name is Sanjana, and I am super excited to write about my first day experience preparing for the summer long project and to be mentored by Dr. Dailey. First of all, I would like to thank Discovery Education and 3M for considering my idea and allowing me to work with proper guidance from a renowned scientist. I am truly honored by it. About two months ago, after winning awards at Science Olympiad competitions, my 8th grade Science teacher suggested that I submit my new idea to Young Scientist Challenge. This really boosted my inclination to invent and work on science projects. Read more
