Student scientists conducted a water-drop test on fabric swatches to determine the best-performing fabrics for moisture absorption and dispersion. They recorded and compiled data, created dot plot diagrams and wrote conclusions about their work. Students reported their findings to 3M via Power Point and other business presentation software to assist 3M in determining optimal materials to use in developing support wraps for weak ankles, knees, wrists and other body parts.
