We are pleased to announce that RIMOSA has been awarded an NSF funded physical kit, with all of the materials and instructions to deliver high-quality hands-on activities to engage the pubic in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology! Check it out on the NISE Network! We plan to host at least one, and ideally more, programs with this kit during nanodays–the last week of March. So stay tuned!
This spring, RIMOSA will pop up at the State House on June 1, and Burnside park June 22. This summer, RIMOSA will be doing all new programming at the Pawtucket Boys and Girls Club, and is scheduled to conduct a number of free programs in Sound, Light, and more at libraries around the state, through the Teen Summer Reading Program. Check out our page on the OLIS website or our facebook page to see when and where we will be at a library near you!
Is to kindle curiosity and encourage experimentation. Or, more officially, The Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art merges art and science creating innovative, interactive exhibits and programs that awaken curiosity, encourage experimentation, and improve understanding of the world around us.
Although our focus is towards older children–too old for children's museums, but too young to have lost the desire to tinker, experiment and create–our open-ended, hands-on exhibits are engaging, fascinating, and fun for all ages!
At present, RIMOSA is a "museum without walls". We borrow the locations of others to temporarily host our exhibits and conduct our programs. Check here regularly to see when and where our "pop-ups" are now. We also conduct outreach programs for schools and other organizations. Please click here to learn more about our progress.
