National Sponsor
Our Partnership with 3M
3M has sponsored the MATHCOUNTS Foundation at the national and local levels for more than 2 decades.

Recently, 3Mgives grants have supported our partnership with the National Society of Black Engineers and given extra resources to underserved communities nad schools where a majority of students are underrepresented in STEM.

In addition to national support, local 3M facilities are actively involved with MATHCOUNTS in their communities! 3M employees serve as coaches and co-coaches, plan and run extra math competitions and practice sessions for students and volunteer at chapter and state competitions.

3M employees also play a vital role in the strategic direction of the Foundation and local-level leadership:
  • Robin Higgs, Manufacturing Director, Film and Materials Resources Division, is a current member of the MATHCOUNTS Board of Directors.
  • Jason Unruh, Systems Engineering Specialist, is the coordinator for the Northeastern South Dakota Chapter.
  • Adam Buckhouse, Electrical Engineer, is the co-coordinator for the Northeastern South Dakota Chapter.
