      • How many Post-it Notes would it take to circle the world once?
      • Write your name and your educated guess on a Post-it Note and stick it on the wall.
      • The winner will receive a 3M Innovation Kit.
    • 4. What’s the Story?
    • 5. Post-It Notes
      • Dr. Spencer Silver, a 3M scientist, discovered the formula for the sticky stuff back in 1968.
      • But it was Silver's colleague, Art Fry, who finally came up with a practical use for it. The idea for repositionable notes struck Fry while singing in the church choir. His bookmark kept falling out of his hymnal, causing him to lose his page.
      • So, taking advantage of a 3M policy known as the "bootlegging" policy, Fry used a portion of his working hours to develop a solution to his problem.

    • 7. Challenge Process
      • Grades 5 through 8
      • Students will be challenged to create a one- to two-minute video about a specific scientific concept which they will select from a list of concepts provided by YSC judges.
      • Video entries must demonstrate the student's understanding of the scientific concept explained and should also exhibit his or her comfort level discussing science in general.
    • 8. Challenge Process
      • Video entries must demonstrate your understanding of the scientific concept explained and your ability to effectively communicate that concept.
      • Videos do NOT need to be "produced" or have high production value. Judges are not evaluating production skills. Videos may be recorded on cell phones or simple digital cameras, for example.
      • Entries that follow all of the rules and regulations will be based on the average of scores awarded by a panel of judges using the following rubric.
        • Creativity (20%)
        • Content meets stated contest criteria (30%)
        • Persuasiveness (10%)
        • Classroom suitability (10%)
        • Overall Presentation (30%)
    • 9. Prizes
    • 10. Resources and Tips
    • 11. Communicating Science
      • Video entries must demonstrate the student's understanding of the scientific concept explained and should also exhibit his or her comfort level discussing science in general.
