As homeschool parents, we are free to let our children explore their true passions and interests and I know a lot of you have science-y kids. I see the many STEM posts on your blogs and Pinterest. Some of you are definitely raising future scientists!

If your child is one of those science-minded kids, you might be interested in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge.

Discovery Education has partnered with 3M to foster the next generation of passionate innovators who are inspired to improve the world with science. Together, they developed the Young Scientist Lab, an interactive portal filled with engaging activities and teaching tools, anchored by the award-winning annual Young Scientist Challenge.


Children Improving the World with Science

11-year-old Gitanjali Rao honored as America's Top Young Scientist


Last year, Gitanjali Rao, an 11-year-old girl, was honored as "America's Top Young Scientist" for inventing a quick, low-cost test to detect lead-contaminated water. She won $25,000 for her world-improving invention.

Gitanjali hopes to reduce the time of lead detection in water by using a mobile app, to connect over Bluetooth to get status of water, almost immediately.
