The 2017/18 Challenge

Thermo Fisher Scientific has asked your team for help developing a new product for your home.  This product can be anything that you can use in your home and it must be environmentally friendly.  Thermo Fisher Scientific is working to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.  This product could be (but not limited to) a new way to power your home, a new type of appliance, or a new gadget for home entertainment.  Be creative!

Additional Middle School Challenge
