Stop the presses — the Tiniest Science Museum has just landed at the Brooklyn Public Library, Central Branch.
The museum offers a microscopic view of the world’s Smallest Mollusk Museum, that is just the size of a vending machine.
The new compact science museum by MICRO, takes complex science topics and squeezes them into small spaces. The first in the fleet focuses on the mollusk—a slimy invertebrate who survives in every habitat on earth.
In spite of the tiny size, the museum features 15 different displays, including: a holographic aquarium; the first-ever 3D print of an octopus heart; three miniature movie theatres; and of course, a bucket of slime —yuck!
“We are excited to be working with MICRO to bring innovative science and education programming to BPL,” said Christine Schonhart, assistant director of the Central branch.
“Our mission is to bring science into new and unexpected places,” said Amanda Schochet, computational ecologist and co-founder of MICRO.
