Community Educational Engagement:  Xtech Webcast: Color (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:04:55
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.

Running Time:

The Explainers are the go-to people on the Exploratorium's floor--in their trademark orange vests, they roam the vast museum, helping visitors engage with the exhibits. In this show, we explore the field trip Explainers, a team of people from all different backgrounds, some of whom had little interest in science before getting involved here. The story isn't just about our home team, it's about the broader possibilities of teamwork and togetherness.
