Studies show that middle school is the opportune time to engage students in scientific exploration - and as their teacher, you play a critical role in your students' scientific growth. You can help spark the curiosity and wonder in your students that leads to problem-solving!
The 3M Young Scientist Challenge is a unique project-based learning opportunity that gives students a chance to work one-on-one with a 3M Scientist during an exclusive summer mentorship, developing new skills and transforming their idea intro a working prototype! Encourage your scientists to enter today and use these resources to help guide them through the process.
