Sketch Aquarium

 

This is an aquarium where sea creatures drawn by children come to life!

 

Children use their imagination to create colorful sea creatures on paper. These sea creatures then come to life as projections that enter a virtual sea, and begin to swim about freely. When children get close to the display, a piece of food appears before them, causing the creatures in the virtual sea to gather around it.

 

Produced by teamLab, Tokyo-based ultra-technologists group blurring the borders between Technology, Art, and Design through “experimentation and innovation”.

Light, Color and Technology

 

Get to know the electromagnetic spectrum!

 

Through this program designed by Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art ("RIMOSA"), students learn about the physics and chemistry of color through light, pigment and nano-structure.  Combining a previous program Bending Light, Electric Dough, Nano and Color with a new program which introduces the creation of Indonesian-style shadow puppets, this program provides students a thorough understanding of light and color and further experimentations with nano-scale technology.

 

Designed as a 6 week program, it may also run as an individual program focusing on one aspect of light. Outreach programs are designed for students in grades 3-12. 

 

RIMOSA’s mission is to awaken curiosity and increase independent learning, creativity, and innovation in kids 8 and up – and adults, too!  We want to help kids become creative problem solvers that can examine and understand the world around them.  This mission is accomplished by encouraging the exploration of science through art, and art through science, with interactive exhibits, educational programming, performances and participation in music, dance and theater, informal discussions, and other museum events.
