Young Scientist Challenge

The Young Scientist Challenge seeks the creative solutions of our students in grades 5 through 8!

Entrants should identify an everyday problem related to the way we move, the way we keep ourselves healthy, or the way we make a difference. The problem should directly impact them, their family, their community, or the global population. The idea must be a new innovation or solution, and cannot simply be a behavioral change or a new use for an existing product. 
The challenge is to create a one- to two- minute video that...
  • explains the problem and how it impacts them, their family, their community or the global population;
  • describes a new innovation or solution that could solve or impact the problem;
  • explains the science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics behind their innovation; and
  • illustrates how their innovation could both address the everyday problem they've identified and have a broader impact locally or globally.
