Week 2- Shawn Farmand

I had my introductory call with my mentor, Dr. Joe Oxman, last week. He is an amazing scientist with many innovations and inventions. I am very excited and lucky to be working with him. This is an amazing opportunity and all the finalists should be very proud of themselves.

So far, my observations have been coming along well. I have noticed problems in everything from traffic to dental health to the response time of emergency vehicles. It was quite difficult to narrow down the list of eight observations to just three. Eventually though, after a lot of picking and choosing, I found the three that were the most interesting.  

I believe that 3M scientists are motivated because they can find solutions to everyday problems and make life easier for everybody. I am so excited I get to work with such amazing scientists.
