Mythbusters to Host Discovery Science Search


Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, co-hosts of Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters, will host the “2004 Discovery Channel Young Scientist Challenge,” the network said Wednesday.

The contest pits 40 students in grades 5-8 against each other, competing for more than $100,000 worth of scholarships and special prizes and the title of "America's Top Young Scientist of the Year."

The competition will be held Oct. 23-27 at the University of Maryland, and the network said it will air the finals at some point in the future.

Mythbusters airs on Discovery Wednesdays from 9 p.m.-10 p.m. (EST/PST).
