A lack of access to education and training are among the biggest threats to the future of innovation.
As of April 2020, more than 124,000 schools and 55 million students across the U.S. and more than 1 billion around the world are studying from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because we believe the next generation of innovators is so important, 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.
