SAHIL - HAVING A 3M MENTOR

Over this past week, I chose one of my three problems to solve and have begun research for plausible solutions. Though I was sad about narrowing my options down to one, I am excited to embark on a quest for a solution to one of the world's biggest issues.

Having a 3M mentor to help is an incredible experience. My mentor, Dr. Jonza, has helped me become a much more global thinker due to his extensive experience as a a scientist in the real world. Also, with a mentor, I can share my ideas and receive instantaneous feedback about them. Read more

Also, if other solutions exist, how much of an innovation it would be compared to past solutions or ideas. Read more
