Metcalf 8th grader Ellie Scheldberg was invited to present at the 2018 3M Young Innovators Conference, held on May 4 at 3M's main headquarters in Maplewood, Minn. The conference showcased the top awarded science fair projects from the 2018 Minnesota State Science Fair.
Ellie's project, "Making Pollution a Solution," focused on addressing the problem of food spoilage in parts of the world where access to refrigeration is limited.
She was one of only 3 middle school students to present at this year's conference. Students invited had the opportunity to present to many engineers and other 3M staff, as well as participate in an open dialogue luncheon with 3M's most senior engineers.
