Discover the Tibetan Buddhist view of the mind with Geshe Lhakdor. He discusses how awareness and sensory information (sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch) are perceived through different forms of consciousness, and how Buddhist practitioners investigate their inner mental experiences to better understand their experience of the world around them. TI staff biologist Karen Kalumuck busts some of the myths about taste, and presents a few fun activities for the classroom.
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! 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-salt! Watch as Exploratorium staff and local teachers compete for the title of Iron Science Teacher. Each contestant has 10 minutes to make a science lesson out of a secret ingredient. In this special Halloween edition, today's secret ingredient is: Plastic Bags! James Turrell studied optics and perceptual psychology in college, but gravitated towards art as his curiosity led him to investigate light itself. In this Webcast of a lecture, James Turrell discusses his experiences manipulating pure light and how it became his artistic medium. He reveals how this early work led him to discover Roden Crater in Arizona and to create his subsequent lifelong project of transforming the crater into an astronomical observatory. 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. In this special "holiday" edition of Iron Science Teacher, Paul Doherty joins our competition in the webcast studio live from Antarctica. 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: ice! Check in with Noel Wanner and Paul Doherty as they tell us more about their visit to the active volcano Mt. Erebus.
