The annual contest called for students in grades 6-8 to submit a video demonstrating the science behind a possible solution to a common problem. Each finalist will now be paired with a 3M scientist to develop and manufacture an invention that solves the problem they identified.

All finalists will receive US$1,000 and a trip to 3M’s Innovation Center in St. Paul, MN. The winner will receive $25,000 along with the opportunity to attend the taping of a Discovery Network TV show.
