Introducing the Planeterrainium

Explore the surfaces of different planets in the solar system in 3D ... right beneath your feet! In this exhibit you will have the chance to roam around different planets in the solar system, and get a free pair of 3D glasses so that you can almost imagine that you are flying above the planets surface just below you.

Location: Gordon Field House

Introducing the Digital Solar Explorer

Explore the star at the center of our Solar System that makes life as we know it possible. View the Sun in ways that only modern technology make possible. You are put in control of the Sun with our motion control technology and spherical projection system. Observe the life cycle of the Sun, as well as its current activity. See what you take for granted every day in a whole new light.

Location: College of Science: Room 1300

Revisit the SCUBE

The purpose of the Digital Immersive Cube, a.k.a The Scube is to immerse its viewers in a truly unique learning experience. Participants enter the cube 10 people at a time and are exposed to cool and informative information about evolution, global warming, the galaxy, invasive species, and even some of the world's most important inventions.

Enjoy Family Science Fun... with Rockets!

Come visit our activity and have a blast with your family! Work together as a family to design a rocket out of recyclable materials and basic supplies from around the house and then watch it soar through the sky. Once you are done, try again, doing something different to see just how far you can go!

Location: Outside, Field North of N-Lot

Discover MultiWavelength Astronomy

Visitors will learn about Astronomy research topics being studied by RIT students and see how we gain information from distant objects using the entire spectrum of light. Using Instruments that can "see" what our eyes aren't capable of seeing helps Astronomers unveil hidden features of galaxies, planets, stars and nebulae. At this exhibit visitors can control an interactive display that shows a mulitwavelength view of the universe.
