The 2019 3M Young Scientist Challenge

The 2019 3M Young Scientist Challenge


The 2019 3M Young Scientist Challenge is now accepting entries!

Created for students in Grades 5 – 8, this challenge is designed to help nurture and reward a child's interest in STEM during the time when most young students begin to lose interest.

To enter, students should review the six entry topics presented at the Website, then identify a solution to an everyday problem that aligns with one of the six entry topics and that directly impacts them, their families, their communities, and/or the global population.

For example, the 2017 winner, Gitanjali Rao, created a sensor-based device to detect lead in water faster than other current techniques. (Think Flint, Michigan water crisis!)


Then your child must create a video based on his/her own original idea that addresses the challenge outlined in the contest entry information. The contents of the video are up to your child, but it may contain your child's likeness, image, voice or other identifiable features.

Students are competing for a Grand Prize of $25,000 plus a 3M mentorship.

But you must hurry because the Challenge closes on May 7th.

For information on the other prizes to be awarded and the complete details of the Contest, please see the Official Rules and entry form for the Contest or visit www.youngscientistlab.com.
