Wow! It is hard to believe that there is only about one week left until the final event. The summer has gone by so fast. It feels like just yesterday I was trying to brainstorm ideas for my innovation. I am so excited for the final event at 3M Headquarters in Minnesota. I cannot wait to meet everybody!

Hello fellow scientists!  The whole process of the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientists Challenge has been amazing for me so far, and I am looking forward to continuing my project and to the final competition in October. As of now, my favorite part of the Young Scientists Challenge has been designing and building my prototype. I love innovating and using my mind to solve problems, and I have done a lot of that in my project!
