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!

Hey guys! I can't believe that this is the last  blog post and that the Final Event is less than ten days away!! These past 4 months have been a dream and I can't wait to share my findings with everyone! I'm so excited to visit the 3M innovation center and see what the others have been working on as well. Be sure to watch my video of me sharing my reflection of my summer mentorship and scientific journey. Thank you for following my blogs and being a part of my unforgettable experience!:)

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!

Hi all! It’s Krish, and I’m here with my fifth blog post! Wow, can anyone believe that there’s less than a month till the Young Scientist Challenge Finalist event occurs? I remember July like it was yesterday- time really flies! Today, I’d like to talk about the element that was able to spark my project and enhance it to such a high level.

Hard to believe it is the penultimate blog. I can almost see the end. I am excited about meeting everyone from the group and those at 3M. As I have stated in my video, it has been great working on a product that will benefit the humanity, especially those in the underserved areas of the globe. Having the expertise of a professional scientist, backed by the resources of 3M, has been a unique experience.

Hey there, Fifth blog post here. It’s been over two months since the summer mentorship started, and little over a month before the final event. In this blog I want to briefly share some of the highlights during the process so far.
