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 visual communication principles and use modern computer graphics tools to create visualizations that accurately represent scientific and technological concepts while meeting high aesthetic and artistic standards. We also strive to empower educators with the skills to create such visualizations on their own.

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

This website is a venue for educators to share experiences and ideas about the role of visualization for teaching and learning science and technology. We invite you to see our portfolio, browse ourĀ resources, and join ourĀ forum.

We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.
