Tip Tuesday: Tips on How to Juggle School & YSC!

Organization pays off! 

Since there are still a couple months to go until the 3M Young Scientist Challenge’s  April 21st deadline, get organized so you can make the most of the time you have left!


First, brainstorm everything you still need to accomplish. Once you have a list, rewrite it in order—and make sure “Submit my entry!” is the final step.

Next, work backwards and assign a deadline to each item on your list. Be realistic and don’t forget about school vacations, other projects, or anything else that may impact how much work you can do. Record these deadlines in your school planner or wherever you keep track of important dates.

Finally, listen to Anna Du describe how she juggled school, activities, and the 3M Young Scientist Challenge. You’ll see how far just a little bit of organization can go!
