People of all ages experimented with our Flight Tube to see what flew, what wouldn’t, and how to alter things to make them fly differently.  They made their own animations on our Zoetrope, and they wrote their hopes and dreams […]

Oops! NOT opening at 171

We had an excellent weekend in early September at the Pawtucket Arts Festival.  Over one hundred people came and enjoyed RIMOSA’s interactive, science/art  exhibits – including the new Naked Piano.  Unfortunately, we have to leave this location in the next month, so we won’t be able to have regular public hours.  We continue to look for (and find) sites for pop-ups […]
