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." Two different viewsone for each eyecreate a 3-D image.
Like your own two eyes, the two video cameras atop the screen are separated by a short distance. Both views are projected simultaneously onto the screen.
Come play at the Exploratorium! Now open at Pier 15 in San Francisco. Virgin America's Captain Christopher Owens gives us a tour of their high-tech flight simulator used for pilot training and reveals just why simulation is an effective learning tool. Join JoAnne Hewett, a theoretical physicist from the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, and Maria Spiropulu, a Caltech experimental physicist working at CERN, who came to the Exploratorium to speak with us about the implications of the Higgs discovery.

This buoy will be anchored near the Exploratorium for six months, monitoring the acid levels of the bay and transmitting data to NOAA via satellite. This research will give NOAA scientists a better understanding of how the rising acid levels in the ocean are affecting very diverse things such as fish behavior, larvae development, and even plankton. Homegrown, handmade and hands-on, theres no place in the world like the Exploratorium. Now that were open at Pier 15, theres more to explore than ever before. The Exploratorium has commissioned San Francisco-based filmmaker Paul Clipson to create an abstract 16mm film study of the area surrounding our new downtown waterfront site at Pier 15. The film showcases Clipson's extraordinary treatment of the complex natural and cultural systems in the urban landscape, from the ephemeral rhythms of light and water to the rigid order of crosswalks and skyscrapers. Clipsons work generally involves live collaborative performances with sound artists and musicians. For this film, an original soundtrack will be written and performed by composer Tashi Wada. Theres no mistaking the distinct voicewhether throbbing, singing, or screamingof an electric guitar. How does one instrument produce so many different sounds? We visit with Bay Area electric guitarists Ava Mendoza and Henry Kaiser, plus Subway Guitars very own Fat Dog, to explore the components of this versatile instrument, getting down to pick-ups, pots, and pedals that make it sing.
