The Inspiration and Innovation Path In a time when we are inundated with negativity, it is critically important to illuminate a pathway of hope. Inspiring science teaching, learning, and resources can illuminate this path and spark the innovation needed to transform the world. In this session, we will discuss the importance of preparing the next generation of Global Solution Seekers and encouraging additional students to join the path that 3M innovators are on. Participants will see how these ideas translate into ready-to-use activities that educators can use in lesson planning.
