In conjunction with this summer's special exhibition Reflections, Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty joins us for a hands-on Webcast. What effect does looking through two mirrors have on an image? Or three mirrors? How does the interaction of solar radiation on sea ice effect climate change?
Please join us as we chat live with Dr. Don Perovich, an expert in the fields of albedo effect, and sea-ice mass balance on climate.
Join us as we talk with Dr. William Fry, emeritus professor at Stanford University and the father of gelotology, the study of humor and laughter, and their effects on the human body. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he measures the power used by two lightbulbs--one incandescent and one fluorescent--that make the same amount of light. A century after publication of Einstein's famous papers on light and relativity, this most celebrated of Nobel Laureates will be the subject of a talk by award-winning science writer K.C. Cole. She'll discuss the ways in which Einstein continues to influence physics today, from detecting gravity waves to understanding string theory. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity from a special St. Patrick's Day secret ingredient-things that are green! Searching for extraterrestrial life: is it telephoning aliens or really complicated math equations? Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty, NASA Ames planetary Scientist Eric Wegryn, and SETI's Senior Scientist Seth Shostak as they explore how to find planets that could support life. How many of these planets are there? How did we find them? When will we know for sure? The concept of space-time--perhaps Einstein's most fundamental contribution to our understanding of the universe--will be explored using special red lasers. Exploratorium Senior Scientist, Dr. Paul Doherty, takes us through the Photoelectric Effect and the "invention" of photons. Watch as the best teachers on the planet battle it out for the title of Iron Science Teacher. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity. This week’s “secret” ingredient: CD cases!
