About 3M

At 3M, we bring together science and imagination to create products that change the way we live. We have made driving at night easier, made buildings safer, and made consumer electronics lighter, less energy-intensive and less harmful to the environment. We even helped put a man on the moon! Take a closer look at the world that is around you, and you’ll soon discover that you’re likely in touch with a 3M product more often than you know.

No limits

We continuously connect ideas and insights, people and products differently than anyone else. Because we collaborate across business and technologies and share our diverse experiences, we see things differently; from all angles; and with limitless potential for progress.

Dare to dream

3M is proud to partner with Discovery Education to present the Young Scientist Challenge – to cultivate the next generation of scientific innovators, creative thinkers, and problem-solvers. Our world needs talented students like you to follow your passion for scientific exploration, discovery, and dare to dream…so we can continue to create products that create change for the better.

We invite you to enter the Young Scientist Challenge to create an innovative, scientific solution to a problem that will reshape the way we live our lives, every day. We hope this is one of many steps you take in your lifelong journey to discover the wonders of science that are all around you, just waiting to be explored.

With curiosity and innovation, you really can make a difference. We can’t wait to see your entry!
