ARTEMiS – Using Art to Visualize Scientific Concepts

Optic Awareness

ARTEMiS, which stands for “ART for Engineering, Mathematics and Science”, is an initiative at MIT that uses visualizations to enhance the teaching and learning of scientific concepts. Below is a quote about the goals of ARTEMiS.

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.

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

– Maria Montessori
