Here is an opportunity you won’t want to miss!

We are in the final push for entries for the DE/3M Young Scientist Challenge and we need your help to spread the word during the final 2 weeks! The process is easy and if you get 3 students to complete the registration process and upload a video, you’ll receive a FREE FLIP CAM (only one camera per STAR).

Here are your 3 easy steps:

Step 1
Spread the word to fellow teachers, parents or students using the flyer that outlines the simple registration process and the great prizes including a $50,000 U.S. Savings Bonds, trip to 3M’s global headquarters to work alongside leading scientists, a trip to NYC to attend the competitions final events and much more!

(Here’s the flyer!)

Step 2
Get at least 3 students to register – It’s 3 easy steps: 1) Register online at 2)Have parents submit online consent form and 3) Have students upload a quick 2 minute video on a science topic found on the site.

Step 3
Complete this form with the first and last names of students you had enter. We’ll check their names against the database to confirm they completed their registration and then send you your prize!

The program closes May 27th, so don’t delay.

    This is so exciting! I am fortunate to teach in a computer lab and my students were very excited to work on this challenge. I have some bringing back reports on the food temperature in the cafeteria and who did/did not wash their hands. They really enjoyed thinking of ways to help prevent some of these problems.
