As a company of curious problem-solvers and solution seekers, 3M knows science can help create a brighter world for everyone.

That’s why we’re focused on “What’s Next.” with 3M Science as a vital driver – giving everyone who comes to the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota, a chance to experience how science can help contribute to stronger communities, a healthier planet and scientific advancements.

“The 3M Open is 7,468 yards of 3M Science,” said Collin Hummel, 3M senior manager of brand sponsorships. “3M is all over the course, from the moment fans arrive to on the tee boxes with the TOUR golfers. We’re able to use our products to put on a tournament – not only to highlight our company, but to support a successful event and enhance the fan experience with hands-on and experiential moments that give people a chance to interact with our products and technologies.”

Tournament attendees will have plenty of moments July 18-24 to experience 3M Science first-hand, through more than 50 physical and digital activations that show the many unexpected ways 3M Science improves lives.

The 3M Science Dome, located in the TPC Fan Village, is 3M’s main area for fans to experience “What’s Next.” Before they even set foot inside the approximately 1,200-square-foot dome, visitors will experience 3M Science in the entrance tunnel that incorporates 3M™ Flexile Acoustic Material, commonly used in automotive design to effectively manage noise and vibration. Just before entering the dome, visitors will be greeted by a welcome video message from actor Josh Duhamel, hidden behind 3M™ Sensor Camouflage Film.

Inside the dome, fans will experience a 360-degree video, “The Impossible, Possible World,” a four-minute inspirational short film that shows how humanity continuously overcomes the impossible and redefines what’s possible. Other video content will feature the M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital music therapy program, which 3M supported with room décor and equipment upgrades, plus live 360-degree video from tee boxes on the course, and more.

The 3M Science Dome is also full of stations for fans to explore, including:

3M sustainability exhibits will help spectators see how they can be more sustainable in their everyday lives. These experiences will be near the TPC Fan Village and high traffic areas around TPC.

A few of the notable sustainability activities include:

In addition, specially trained sustainability volunteers will be stationed around the course to answer fans’ questions and help them understand their sustainability options at TPC and broader actions the tournament is doing related to sustainability.

Of course, event goers will see many familiar 3M products and brands featured in ways ranging from practical to playful. Some examples include:
