Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute presents the Molecularium™ show, Riding
Snowflakes, a state-of-the-art, computer-generated planetarium
show designed to spark young children’s interest in the
atoms and molecules that constitute our world. Supported by a
grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the show integrates
advanced scientific simulations into an immersive educational
animation. The Molecularium is part of the educational and outreach
program of Rensselaer’s NSF-funded
Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) for Directed
Assembly of Nanostructures.
