Okay, so the deadline for Doodle4Google is today. Hope you submitted a doodle, but if doodling isn’t your thing, and you’re in grades 5-8, maybe you’d like to turn your attention to another challenge: the 3M Young Scientist Challenge (click on the title to get more information and enter the challenge.) You could be America’s next Top Young Scientist!

Students, grades 5-8, are invited to create a 1-2 minute video describing a new, innovative solution that could solve an everyday problem. Ten finalists will be chosen for their passion for science, spirit of innovation and ingenuity, and effective communication skills.

Thousands of students nationwide have participated in the competition and winners have gone on to do some amazing things; including speak in front of members of Congress, work with the nation’s top scientists, and pursue academic careers in the sciences.

If you’re interested in participating, feel free to join us for a free webinar about the experience from those who have lived it. The webinar is on the evening of Thursday, April 1.

    Hi, Ms. Jeanette! (it seems the proper name to call you.) How do you get involved in virtual field trip? I’ve heard about those things.

    • Jeanette (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

      Hi Shelby! Virtual field trips are accessible to everyone. We (someone or some people from Discovery Education) travel somewhere and explore it for you and then bring the experience to you, virtually — via an online event. Sometimes the virtual field trips include tours, interviews, activities, etc. You can find all our virtual field trips listed — and archived — at! Let me know if you have more questions. :-)

    sounds great for kids looking for something to do,… im good at science but for some reason not that interested i like to do more than experiments, i would like to experience it like going to the ocean to look for an endangered animals. I hope a person that really cares wins and wont use his/her rewards as an act of selfishness maybe he/she would donate some to charity or buy needs not wants. I hope that YOU enter and win!!! :):):) HAVE FUN!!! :D

      Does anyone else see this comment going off their screen or is my computer just glitching?

      • Jeanette (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

        Hi Shane… thanks for noticing! I fixed this comment, which was running quite long.

  15. Alice (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

    OMG I got to join it. I wanted to make the doodle but I have no time that week when I found out. :( So I found this out and I guess I’m pretty good in science. And am willing to try it out.

  16. Evan (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

    So… Can multiple people enter together? Ive got a friend I want to enter with… Anybody know if we can enter together?

    • Shane (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

      you would probably have to enter as one person and split the prize

  17. HH (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

  27. A (Reply) on Thursday 20, 2014

    I like things like this, but I don’t think I would want to actually win, because I hate giving speeches, I don’t really want a science collage, I just kind of think about it as a sort of hobby, and I work ALONE
