Rhode Island Computer Museum FAQ’s

Doing our bit

We must remember that electronic waste can have a hazardous effect on the environment and human health. Although it can be difficult to find current statistics on the scope of electronic waste, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated that in 2009, U.S. consumers and businesses discarded over 2.37 million tons of televisions, computers, cell phones, printers, scanners, and faxes. Only 25 percent of these electronics were collected for recycling, with the rest disposed of in landfills.

Teachers corner

At the Rhode Island Computer Museum (RICM), we provide exciting opportunities for all visitors to learn from our world-class collections of inspiring objects. In many places, vintage technology is almost extinct. Here at RICM, all kinds of "techosaurs" are alive and well, as well as innovative tech tools that give a glimpse of our futures!
