Discovery Education and 3M have named 11-year-old Peyton Robertson from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. winner of the 2013 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge for his innovative sandbag design. Every year, millions of dollars of damage are incurred due to salt-water flooding, with the most recent claims being made during last year’s Hurricane Sandy. This prototype aims to help better protect flood zones against salt-water damage from future storms. Robertson, a sixth grader at Stanford University’s Middle School, competed alongside nine other finalists yesterday during a live competition at the 3M Innovation Center in St. Paul, Minn., and was awarded the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist,” $25,000 and a trip to Costa Rica from Discovery Student Adventures.read more
