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.
How do our lungs work? Follow along as special guest Dakota Dozier, an offensive lineman for the Minnesota Vikings, makes a model to show how air flows in and out of the lungs with ease.
Join 3M Researcher Vasav Shani as he introduces you to the science of surface tension. Not only is it only important for many engineering and earth science processes, it also makes blowing bubbles possible.
Did you know your red marker has more than just red ink inside of it? 3M’s SVP for Research & Development and Chief Technology Officer, John Banovetz shows a simple way to separate the materials in your marker using capillary action.
Believe it or not, you can feel sound! Join Gitanjali Rao, former Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge winner, as she teaches about the frequency of sound and how we perceive pitch.
A jetliner can weigh over 300 tons, so why doesn’t it just drop out of the air? 3M’s SVP of Corporate Affairs, Denise Rutherford explains the Bernoulli principle and how without it, planes (and birds) couldn’t fly.
Ever wonder why things mix (or don’t mix) differently in different temperatures of water? Join Camille Schrier, a scientist who was crowned Miss America 2020, as she explains diffusion and how substances move though water.
Your teacher might not love when you have one in class, but the physics behind fidget spinners are truly head-spinning! Join 3M scientist Tesha R.-Alston Dampier as she shows you how a spinning motion changes the way things move.
