Flip Flops and Beakers

FLIP FLOPS AND BEAKERS | Dreaming of summer? We are too…we’re getting ready for a one-of-a-kind summer filled with exclusive one-to-one mentorships with real 3M scientists! Read on to find out how you can join us. 

Summer science camps are great, but what could be better than learning science by doing science under the mentorship of a real 3M scientist? Enter the Young Scientist Challenge and you could be one of ten lucky finalists who win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Each finalist gets paired with a 3M scientist (check out the list of mentors) to work on an innovation to a real-world problem. The mentor guides the finalist over the summer as they develop their solution and helps them prepare for the final event at the 3M headquarters in St Paul, Minnesota. That’s where finalists get a behind-the-scenes tour of the 3M labs and the 3M Innovation Center and meet their mentor in person! So what are you waiting for? Grab your flip flops and beakers and enter the challenge today!
