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

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.

For the past week, I narrowed my list down to three problems and then selected one to solve as my final solution. I chose them based on what I knew from my previous experience, and eliminated the ones that addressed only a limited amount of the population. Read more

Wow, time flies by so fast! It feels like I only got started yesterday, but now it's August!
I’ve been making a lot of progess on my app, and it’s running successfully in the browser. I just need to polish it up a bit and it’ll be good to go!
In addition, my mentor, Dr. Hardy, has been so helpful. In our weekly calls, I get so many new ideas and learn how to solve existing problems that I’m having.
All this research has been hard work, but I know it’ll pay off in the end! 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
