Human Phenomena Explainer Station

Human Phenomena Explainer Station

Explainers are stationed throughout the Exploratorium doing structured and open-ended demonstrations. Ask an orange-vested Explainer to help you explore.

Magic
Everything is not as it seems—at first. Pick a card, any card, and watch the Explainers reveal some surprising aspects of human perception.

Philosophy (Where do you sit?)
"Should we always tell the truth?" Have thoughtful discussions on philosophical questions that don't have right answers.
