Cheer on the competitors in this zany science cook-off, where teachers compete before a live webcast audience for the sought-after title, "Iron Science Teacher." This week's secret ingredient? Colors!

Join us for a preview of Oaxacan artisans that will be visiting the Exploratorium this summer as part of Colorfest!

XTech at the Exploratorium empowers high school students through the practical use of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Students develop skills - designing and building, creating media, and facilitating community education events - that will lead them into college and beyond. In this show, we will be investigating color. There are colors all around us. Join us and explore the relationship between color and light. Watch as we create colored shadows and trick your mind with colors.

In January and February of 2011, the first of the large 72" in diameter piles were driven 160 feet in to the sea floor at Piers 15 and 17 in San Francisco, the new home of the Exploratorium. These new piles were installed between the two piers and along the south apron of Pier 15. In early March, the steel casings were filled with concrete.

Construction at the Exploratorium's new home on the Embarcadero began in October 2010. Over a three day span in November 2010, the existing non-historic connector building on the east end of Piers 15 and 17 was demolished, revealing for the first time in 55 years a view out to the Bay.

The Exploratorium celebrated its future home at Piers 15 and 17 in San Francisco with an official groundbreaking ceremony and festivities on October 19, 2010.

This video includes interviews with Exploratorium Executive Director Dr. Dennis Bartels and Exploratorium Chairman of the Board George Cogan about Piers 15 and 17, as well as a fly-through animation of the future home of the Exploratorium.
