Atlas Obscura Podcast on The Smallest Mollusk Museum

Yesterday’s episode of the Atlas Obscura Podcast featured the work of MICRO, an organization making mini museums and placing them in accessible spots in the aim of bringing wonder and knowledge to people where they are. It’s working to address unequal access to science education, and it’s maybe a bit less scrappy than it needs to be, but embedding museums and science education widely could be an important part of solving inequity.

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE ATLAS OBSCURA PODCAST, we visit New York, to see one member of a fleet of tiny museums that might just have a big impact on the world.

Podcast: The Smallest Mollusk Museum

MICRO is building a fleet of six-foot-tall museums.

Our team of scientists, designers, engineers, and storytellers take a vast, complex world, and squeeze it down into boxes the size of vending machines.

We replicate the museums, and send them out to the groups and venues in your community who want you to know about the secret systems that run the cosmos.

From hospital waiting rooms to the DMV, MICRO’s fleet of museums show up in the places you least expect them.

[…]
MICRO is committed to building science education for a culturally decentralized future. MICRO believes that access to high quality science is empowering.
