Hello Scientists and Engineers! The finals are coming up fast.  I’m really excited for the final event and can’t wait to meet my 3M mentor in person and tour the 3M innovation center.  In my final video blog I want to share some thoughts on my journey with you.  I talk a bit about some challenges I faced this summer and what I learned this summer.  I hope you like it!

Hi all! This is Krish, and I'm here with my final blog post! Again, what an amazing journey this has been.  Moreover, I am looking forward to the final competition on October 14th- meeting all the other finalists and showing off what we made to the 3M employees will most definitely be fun.  Best Regards, Krish Wadhwani

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!
