Daniel - The Motives of a Scientist

Last week, I selected eight observations from the news and identified the problems behind them. This was very time consuming because the news is mostly about sports and celebrities instead of problems that may be solved with scientific solutions. I did not find it difficult to narrow down my project options to three because I know which ones have the greatest potential to change the world, and the ones that I am most interested in. Read more

My innovation will (in theory) solve all of these problems, but it was challenging to narrow it down to three to work on and solve with my innovation. Eventually, after some thought, I found the three that  I wanted to use.

I believe that 3M scientists are motivated by the fact that they are making something new that will help many people. I always enjoy knowing that my invention can make a difference. Read more
