In this zany competition teachers have ten minutes to create a science activity from a special secret ingredient. This week: plastic water bottles. In this interactive presentation with Exploratorium biologist Karen Kalumuck, find out how flowers entice bees, what bees see in a flower, and the importance of bees to agriculture. Also learn about Colony Collapse Disorder, which is causing once-thriving honeybee colonies to disappear. The Cassini spacecraft continues to orbit Saturn, sending back astonishing images of the ringed planet and its moons. Join us as we look at the latest images and do some hands-on activities to help us understand.
Join host Mary Miller and Dr. Mickey Glantz in a discussion on issues around climate change and how it may affect communities. Join Exploratorium staff scientist Charlie Carlson as he continues to examine issues around the Gulf Stream and climate change. The two Mars Rovers are alive and well after surviving their second Martian winter. Come and see photos of discoveries they made during their third year on Mars, with Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty.
The South Pole Telescope captured its first light on Feb. 16, 2007! Join Exploratorium host Mary Miller as she talks with scientists at the South Pole and finds out more about life at the Pole. Join Exploratorium biologist Karen Kalumuck as she leads a Darwin 101 Webcast using hands-on explorations, audience participation, and special surprises—just in time to celebrate his birthday! Mary Miller chats with scientists at the South Pole about the nearly-completed telescope. The satellite connection to the pole deteriorated quickly, and we hope to repeat this program in the near future. Stay tuned for updates! Dr. Stephen H. Schneider joins us to discuss climate change. Dr. Schneider was honored in 1992 with a MacArthur Fellowship for his ability to integrate and interpret the results of global climate research through public lectures, seminars, classroom teaching, and research collaboration with colleagues.
