In June, 2010, the Exploratorium will launch it's newest exhibition, Geometry Playground. Check out this teaser clip and come back for more on June 25th, 2010. This April Fools’ Day After Dark event exposed people’s threshold for taking chances. For example, visitors could test their belief in the laws of physics as a bowling ball swung toward them. They could also tackle a climbing wall, try their luck at casino games, and see if they had the nerve to carry out the instructions on a card they were given. Exploratorium graphic artist David Barker describes the physics of baseball bats, and makes some sweet music in the process! Our host, Stephanie Chasteen, shares some more fun facts and activities having to do with the science of sound.
A detailed demonstration of how to do the Color Chromatography activity, which lets you see the colors hidden in black ink. Includes a discussion of materials needed. An introduction to an activity that lets you discover the secret colors hidden in black ink. With a paper towel, a black marker, and a cup of water, create a rainbow of colors while exploring capillary action and chromatography. Explore the science behind this activity, including capillary action (how the water moves up the paper) and chromatography, or how different elements of the ink are carried along at different rates, allowing you to see that black ink is actually made up of many different colors. TI staff educator Lori Lambertson explains her philosophy of integrating math and science in the classroom, and how she puts it into practice. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty and visiting scientist Alfredo Mateus for an exploration of hands-on demos. In today's webcast, Paul and Alfredo will be looking at a voice activated chemical reaction and what happens when you heat plastic in water! A story can help make a subject come alive for your students. TI teacher coach Carol Murphy talks about the myriad ways she’s used storytelling in her science classes.
