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. Tee off with this week’s “secret” ingredient-golf balls! Join Exploratorium scientist Dr. Paul Doherty and Dr. Eric Wegryn as they discuss the rings of Saturn and show new images from Cassini. Learn how sparkling wine is made, what makes it different from still wine, and where all those little bubbles come from! We reveal how to open a bottle without touching the cork, as well as the best way to keep the bubbles in the bubbly. Join our special guests, Stanford chemistry professor Dick Zare, and French enologist Michel Salgues, winemaker at Roederer Estates in California, as we explore the science of tiny bubbles. Our team of middle school students from the Aim High program investigates new technologies that use our unique physical traits as tools for identification. Vox Unlocks tunes into voice recognition 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: Shoe Boxes! Why do many things sound different underwater? How are echoes made? Can you feel or see sound? Join us as we delve into the mysteries of sound. This webcast will feature an Aim High student demonstrating how to make a membranophone; Exploratorium physicist Dr. Paul Doherty modeling sound with ringing aluminum rods, corrugated plastic whirlies, and a slinky; and Marco Jordan, lead educator in the Exploratorium's Outreach program, demonstrating sound science with a "whine" glass and a singing bowl. For science fair competition taken to the third power, watch two veteran scientists as they battle head to head to determine who is the Iron Scientist. Home-town favorite, Exploratorium physicist, Dr. Dr. Paul Doherty will square off against heavy-weight contender, visiting Exploratorium Osher Fellow and Boston University astrophysicist Professor Kenneth Brecher. They have 5 minutes to teach their favorite activities, and then move on to the secret ingredients: marbles and panty hose Nine Aim High students explore shadow and light, and build their own energy machines. In this webcast, the students delve into energy transference and alternative energy sources like solar cells and wind power. Nine Aim High students explore shadows and light, and build their own energy machines over the Spring of 2001. In this webcast, the students look at things that glow in both the area of physics and the area of biology. In these archived webcasts from inside the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) exhibition hall, watch as Exploratorium senior scientist Tom Humphrey challenges some of the top scientists in the world to explain the phenomena behind selected exhibits from the museum floor. In this webcast: the String Squirter exhibit, as explained by a guest physicist Leon Lederman.
