STEM Everyday #226 | 3M Young Scientist Challenge | feat. Jeff Emslander STEM Everyday

The annual 3M Young Scientist Challenge is the nation’s premier science competition for grades 5-8. This one-of-a-kind video competition has sparked a sense of wonder and discovery in hundreds of thousands of students and enhanced science, innovation and communication across the United States. Students submit a 1-2 minute video describing a unique solution to an everyday problem for the chance to win $25,000 and an exclusive 3M Mentorship. Ten finalists will be chosen for their passion for science, spirit of innovation and ingenuity, and effective communication skills.When first launched in 1999, the Young Scientist Challenge had the same mission it does today: to foster a new generation of American scientists at an age when interest in science generally declines. In 2008, Discovery Education joined forces with 3M – one of the world’s most notable innovators – to cultivate the next generation of problem-solvers and give students the unique opportunity to work directly with 3M scientists. Jeff Emslander is a 3M Scientist and has helped mentor finalists as part of the Young Scientist Challenge for many years. Your students can enter their innovative idea videos by May 16, 2022. If that entry date has passed, make a note to start getting kids ready for next year's challenge!Find out more about the 3M Young Scientist Challenge:Website: resources for educators: Follow #YoungScientist on social mediaChris Woods is the host of the STEM Everyday Podcast… Connect with him:Website: dailystem.comTwitter: @dailystemInstagram: @dailystemYouTube: youtubeGet Chris's book Daily STEM on AmazonSupport the show (
