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

However, my teacher encouraged me to enter the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge. I knew that participation in the Young Scientist Challenge would enhance my critical thinking skills and improve my scientific knowledge, so I decided to create my video. Read more
