Recently, 3M and Discovery Education announced the finalists of the 2022 3M Young Scientist Challenge, a nationwide middle school science competition. The finalists include Asvini Thivakaran, a student from Cedar Valley Middle School in the Round Rock Independent School District. Congratulations, Asvini!
This year’s finalists feature outstanding innovations from fourteen students, ages 12 to 14, who submitted a short video communicating a solution to an everyday problem and the science behind their solution.
Entries were judged on creativity, scientific knowledge and communication effectiveness. The final event will take place in October when each finalist will be evaluated on a series of challenges, including a presentation of their completed innovation.
