At 3M, we innovate in ways big and small, continuously transforming what we deliver and how we drive next-generation ideas forward. At this year’s 3M Open, we’ll be featuring tomorrow’s science, today – showcasing what’s next for the technologies that will help connect, protect, heal and inspire us (BGs). This experience will manifest itself through physical activations, as well as digital content. While we talk of the tournament in terms of 7,200 yards of 3M Science – as made evident by 3M solutions being seen on each golf hole – our primary showcase area is the impressive 50-foot diameter dome: the 3M Science Dome.

Housed inside the dome are activations highlighting each of our 3M business groups:
Consumer: Constantly designing new solutions that simplify and reinvent how we live and work
Health Care: Enabling better, smarter, safer healthcare to improve outcomes for everyone.
Safety & Industrial: Driving performance, safety, and reliability to protect people and transform how work gets done.
Transportation & Electronics: Pioneering bold innovations in mobility, electronics and brands that delight and power the world.
From robotics to space travel to digital telemedicine and the future of collaboration, the 3M Science Dome is an immersive experience that is sure to inspire tomorrow’s scientists and consumers.
Of special note, the dome is also home to a 360º video experience, akin to an IMAX theater. Here, content from our business groups, charity partners, customers, and more is displayed in stunning audio and visual quality. The feature piece of content is a 4-minute feature film titled “The Impossible, Possible World.
The Impossible, Possible World.
Experience a 360º journey of sights and sounds about the human experience – how humanity continues to reimagine what’s possible.
“Everything seems impossible until it’s not. Did you ever think the company that started as a sandpaper company in Two Harbors, Minnesota would be helping make space exploration possible? Let alone that we’d be able to send the heartbeats of those space explorers back down to earth to monitor their health? When we look beyond at what was previously thought impossible, we begin to see a world in which everything is possible. It changes the way we look at the world. Instead of obstacles, opportunities. Roadblocks, new data. The undoable, a chance to roll up our sleeves and get creative. Because there’s always another way. And we’re creating that, today.”
