Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge is excited to present a weekly STEM challenge. Over the course of the next five weeks we’ll provide a quick activity to kickoff your week and extinguish that case of the Mondays. It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3. ONE We launch our very first challenge by looking more broadly
The time has come to reveal the location of the 2016 DEN Summer Institute. A location known to only a few even within Discovery Education. So where will the Summer Institute be? I’m not just going to tell you. That’s far too easy for the mighty brains that read this blog. I will give you
Meet Hannah Herbst, America’s 2015 Top Young Scientist. Inspired by her 9 year old pen pal living in Ethiopia who lacks a reliable source of power and electricity, Hannah created an energy probe prototype that seeks to offer a stable power source to developing countries by using untapped energy from ocean currents and submitted this
Our thanks to our student panelists, educators, and classrooms around the world for joining the discussion, asking questions, and for thinking about what they can do to make make a difference in their communities and our world. Whether you missed the Meet Students Who Are Changing the World panel discussion or want to view it again, the archive is available.
Sparking innovation. Two reasonably easy words to write and say, but notably difficult to make happen. Last week we hosted a virtual experience with students all about how they became ChangeMakers. The students highlighted are doing amazing things at an incredibly young age. This tells me, that given the opportunity and support to pursue their passions, students around
Join us for a unique student panel discussion with young leaders to hear about what inspired their ideas, how they took action, and what all students can do to make a difference.
Today’s lesson features a process art project to direct student thinking about their own values and motivations as they reflect upon the Meet Students Who Are Changing the World student panel discussion. Through collage-making, students represent their identity and self with images, objects, and text.
This Lively Lesson features visual notetaking, or sketchnoting. Sketchnoting enables students to work non-linearly, represent concepts symbolically, create a hierarchy of ideas, and combine text and non-text elements in their product.
This Lively Lesson features a previewing activity to help motivate students and frontload information about the Meet Students Who Are Changing the World student panel discussion, set purpose about the theme, and help students make personal connections to the content.
The Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge is now open for entries. Register your young scientist today and have them start brainstorming their video submission over winter break. Get your students’ creative wheels turning with our thought starters ranging from how we manufacture to how we stay healthy. They can also get some inspiration from
