February 8, 2014: Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge 2014
For the sixth year, Science Olympiadís partner, Discovery Education, would like to invite your Division B teams to
submit science-related videos in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge (YSC)! The top award is $25,000,
plus trips (to Costa Rica!) and other cool benefits, like a special prize pack for any Science Olympiad finalists. In
past years, Science Olympiad has qualified more than 33 semifinalists and 15 finalists in the YSC (who each won $1,000,
trips and prizes). Last yearís overall winner, Peyton Robertson from Florida, was a Science Olympiad alumnus!
The Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events which students prepare for during the year. The competitions follow the format of popular board games, TV shows and athletic games.
These challenging and motivational events are balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. They require knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills and science applications. In addition, during the day there are open house activities that consist of science and mathematics demonstrations, activities and career counseling sessions conducted by professors and scientists at the host institution.
