3M applies science in collaborative ways to improve lives daily.
Its 93,000 employees in more than 70 countries connect with
customers all around the world.
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.
