What We Do

Our Mission

ARTEMiS stands for ART for Engineering, Mathematics, and Science, and our goal is to enhance teaching and learning through high-quality visualizations. We apply the principles of visual communication and use the tools of modern computer graphics to create visualizations that accurately portray scientific and technological concepts, while also meeting high aesthetic and artistic standards. And we strive to empower educators and students with the knowledge and skills to create such visualizations.

Our Work

We create 3D and 2D animations, print and web graphics, and interactive media for teaching and learning in science and technology. We also develop curriculum and provide training for members of the MIT community and other educators who wish to learn how to create and use computer visualizations themselves. We partner with MIT instructors to enhance undergraduate education through the use of visual arts to explain and explore concepts in mathematics, science, and engineering. Our visualizations are available to use in other educational settings, formal or informal; let us know if you want to try them!

This Website

We hope this website will be a venue for educators to share experiences and ideas about the role of visualization for teaching and learning mathematics, science, and engineering. We invite you to see our portfolio to learn about ARTEMiS’s projects; to browse our resources to discover the visualization curriculum and media we recommend; and to join our forum to share news and participate in discussions.
