Molecularium is a computer generated animation for digital dome theaters that makes molecular science fun. The creators have integrated advanced scientific simulations into a groundbreaking immersive cartoon with kid-friendly characters to introduce young people to the world of atoms, molecules and the three states of matter; solids, liquids and gases.
The project has brought together a team of researchers, artists, museum curators and educators, technology designers, musicians, performers, elementary school teachers, students, and professors to create a truly unique experience.
The Molecularium project is part of the educational and outreach program of RPI’s National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for Directed Assembly of Nanostructures.
