Join the Exploratorium as we connect live for the first time with NOAA's newest ship, the Okeanos Explorer. The Okeanos is on its maiden voyage, traveling from Hawaii to Indonesia. We will talk with scientists on the ship and discover what kind of research they are conducting. 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.
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. Paul Stepahin is an Exploratorium exhibit developer who has a background in physics. He's worked on exhibits such as Elephant Turntable and Additor. Paul's knowledge and love of computer science and complex math has made him a resource for Exploratorium staff. In this program, Paul discusses the theoretical math P versus NP problem.
At the South Pole, the Ice Stories crew met up with correspondent Zoe Courville just before she and her team embarked on their 3,000 km traverse across the desolate and frigid East Antarctic Ice Sheet. In this video, Zoe gives us a tour of the vehicles they are taking on their cross-continent journey, including their living module, sleeping quarters, and science sled.
