The Molecularium is a science education project. Its primary creation is Riding Snowflakes, a computer-animated, chemistry-themed show about nano-scale science, formatted for hemispherical projection environments. It is in the tradition of musical cartoons, with atoms and molecules as the central characters and an underlying science-education theme, covering concepts such as states of matter, phase changes, and molecular motion. Its main protagonists are Oxy, an oxygen atom and one of the show's central players; Hydro and Hydra, two hydrogen atoms that bond with Oxy to create water; and Carbon, in one of 3 forms, as a crafty, brash atomic hero. The ship's computer, Mel, is the reassuring voice of certainty aboard the Molecularium, the titular ship where the entire show takes place, with an ability to warp the nature of time and space.

A longer re-imagining of the Molecularium is currently in development for Large-Format theatres to be released world wide.

The Molecularium was produced by Nanotoon, in collaboration with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering under a grant from the National Science Foundation.
