Outreach + Education

RIMOSA’s hands-on, open-ended programming  supports the characteristics that artists and scientists share; curiosity, observation, experimentation and communication. These STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) programs are designed to help participants see the world not as it is, but as it could be. We deliver outreach programs both in person and through kit-based, online venues. 

outreach programs

RIMOSA delivers outreach programs in person or online, through schools, libraries, city and specialty programs, parent groups and other organizations. Designed for up to 25 in-person students at a time, in grades 3-12, our programs all involve highly interactive, hands-on, open-ended activities. They’re led by trained RIMOSA educators who bring all necessary materials with them.

Programs are grouped into topic area suites, but any program can be delivered as a one-time, stand-alone offering, or combined with any other programs to create a cohesive experience that can run for any number of hours over a day, several days, weeks or months.

Each program is designed to run for 60 minutes, but can be adjusted to a longer or shorter running time. We’re happy to make custom suites.

We also make our instructors, activities and exhibits available for brief (or longer!) informal exploration at festivals, science nights, STEAM events and other venues where large groups gather.
