At 3M, science is our driving force. It influences everything around us – in ways you may not realize. In the cars, trains and planes that move us, our homes, offices, hospitals and buildings. It’s in our smartphones and stationery, the energy that lights a room, even the clothes we wear – all created and improved through science.

Here at 3M, we  wonder about science each and every day, hoping to inspire others to do so as well – whether you are an educator or student interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), a scientist passionate about securing a bright future for the state of science worldwide or just someone fascinated by seemingly simple scientific innovations impacting daily life. Come explore with us.
