Lecture: Full Spectrum Science
Exploratorium staff physicist, Ron Hipschman, will talk about many ways to make color -- from neon signs, to oil slicks, to rainbows and more. You'll learn all about light, how it's made and how it interacts. Ron will demonstrate many of the concepts and you'll take away materials that will allow you build your own spectroscope. This dynamic series explores different aspects of physics, including sound, color, heat, and temperature, and electrostatic using hands-on activities, film screenings, and demonstrations. Free with museum admission, but space is limited, so arrive early to be assured a seat. Appropriate for ages 6 years and older. Located in McBean Theater.
