Young Scientist
Discovery Education and 3M have announced that Hunter Hong, a 6th Grade student at The Evergreen School, has been named the state merit winner for Washington in the 2016 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge, the nation’s premier science competition for students grades 5-8.

Hong was chosen as one of only 27 state merit winners nationwide for developing a solution to an everyday problem that could ultimately reshape the way we live our lives.

Each January, students nationwide are asked to create a short video describing a new invention or solution that could solve or impact an everyday problem.

Hong rose to the top of the competition out of hundreds of submissions due to his science acumen, innovative thinking and exceptional communication skills demonstrated in his entry video. The budding young scientist has been recognized for his project on the Hydro Energy Collector (H.E.C.).

Hunter Hong will receive special recognition on the challenge website, and a technology prize pack. Ten overall national finalists have also been selected to advance to the next round, and will participate in a final competition at the 3M Innovation Center in October.

Since its inception in 2008, the Young Scientist Challenge has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in student scholarships and prizes, paired students with world-renowned scientists to give them real-world insights and delivered much-needed science resources to millions of students, teachers and families across the country.

The Evergreen School is located at 15201 Meridian Ave N, Shoreline 98133, and is a private school specializing in the education of highly capable children from preschool through grade 8.

We all can learn a lot from our kids. I wish we would stop telling them they are our "future leader"; why can't they be our leaders NOW!
