Mrinali Kesavadas - Coming to Fruition

Hello fellow scientists,

As my summer of new innovation is coming to a close, I think what I liked the most was learning how to overcome scientific challenges in a short period of time. This experience was greatly enhanced by my interactions with my mentor. When I first started thinking of the innovation challenge, my first thought was that there is no way I can come up with a new invention in just three months. But as I started discussing some ideas with my mentor, he completely supported and encouraged me to go ahead with this new invention. Read more

SANJANA - NARROWING AND SELECTING A PROJECT IDEA

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

SANJANA–MY JOURNEY BEGINS NOW

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
