3M DiscoverE Program
The 3M DiscoverE program will provide volunteers for science fair judging, mentor programs and also lead 45-60 minute hands-on engineering activities in the classroom.
We have activities for grades 1 – 12 for the following engineering subject areas: general engineering overview, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering and environmental engineering.
We also have 3M technology specific activities for grades 1-5 on the topics of abrasives, reflective materials and adhesives.
**NOTE** We are a free resource to schools
Due to travel and scheduling restrictions, volunteers are only available within 25 miles of 3M center in Maplewood.
