The mission of the Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art is to merge art and science creating innovative, interactive exhibits and programs that awaken curiosity, encourage experimentation, and improve understanding of the world around us.
Kindle Curiosity and Encourage Experimentation
Build and sustain a culture of curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking that transforms Rhode Island into a leader in innovation for generations to come.
We realize our vision through these Methods:
- Maintaining a physical space for multi-generational learners to explore, experiment, and create together in a supportive and fun environment.
- Creating hands-on, and minds-on, exhibits/experiences that offer opportunities for open-ended experimentation and creative problem solving.
- Creating portable programs, workshops, and media resources that develop learners’ curiosity, motivation, grit, and problem-solving skills.
- Collaborating with other community groups, leveraging Rhode Island’s rich resources in the arts and sciences, to maximize our collective long-term impact.
