A lack of access to education and training are among the biggest threats to the future of innovation.
The COVID pandemic has impacted education in unprecedented ways, which is why 3M is pleased to support accessible, distance learning programming as children get a new school year underway. According to a recent study, a majority of parents want their local schools to provide a blend of in-person and remote learning or fully remote-learning – reinforcing the critical need for distance learning solutions and resources. We believe in supporting the next generation of innovators and thinkers, which is why 3M scientists are playing their part to support children everywhere with e-learning content.
These simple, at-home experiments conducted by 3M scientists use common household items and are designed to reinforce core scientific principles. School systems, educators, parents, and caregivers are encouraged to use this educational content in virtual classrooms and at home.
3M will post new experiments, featuring 3M scientists and some special guests along the way. Be sure to check back weekly for new content to try at home.
Watch more science experiments designed, and tailored, for kids at home using commonly available items from around your place of living. Each experiment includes information on how to include them in your distance learning curriculum.
