Increased amounts and complexity of scientific data pose new challenges for researchers. Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR works with artists and designers around the state to help make science visible.
Collaborative teams of scientists and artists and designers are working to develop novel visualization techniques to help better understand the data. We have hosted several workshops to make the introductions of art to science and science to art. Read about what we learned from the experience in “Visible Insight.”
Innovation Studios – Spaces for discovery
The Rhode Island School of Design is hosting a series of EPSCoR Innovation Studios around the theme of marine life science and climate change.
STEM to STEAM
The integration of art and design with science is gaining national prominence. Here in Rhode Island it is known as the STEM to STEAM initiative. The National Science Foundation also hosts an International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge every year.
