Connecting science found in textbooks with the science of everyday life can make a world of difference for your students. For some students, there comes an "A-ha!" moment when they realize the scientific concepts they read about are actually at play in everyday items all around them. It is at this moment that science comes to life. And for some, it's what ignites their interest in science and may even lead to a new career path.
Such "A-ha!" moments are the inspiration behind the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge.
