Art, Science, and Technology is an educational interactive multimedia for children 12 years-up, that can be accessed through the “Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico” website [http://www.mapr.org/imls/]. The multimedia allows the user to interact with 11 masterpieces from the Museum’s permanent collection, and explore the effects that temperature, relative humidity, light, and pollution may have on different art forms such as: oil and acrylic paintings, printmaking, photography, sculptures in ceramic, wood, metal, as well as installations. Children also have the opportunity to find biographical information about the artists, access a question and answer section that help them explore artistic elements and principles, preservation concepts, and a glossary of art terms. Teachers will also find a series of lessons plans designed to promote the exploration of the connections between art and science. The multimedia is available in English and Spanish in order to reach the international community.

This is a very creative and interesting educational interactive multimedia, which allows students to learn about art preservation and conservation through play. It is an excellent way to promote Puerto Rican artworks, while at the same time interesting adolescents in the fascinating world of science and technology.
