Come be in your elements with Exploratorium host and scientific raconteur Ron Hipschman. Follow tales of intrigue and invention, join in dynamic demonstrations, and uncover fascinating connections between individual elements and our collective human experience. Argon invisibly occupies nearly one percent of Earth’s atmosphere and holds important roles in industry, medicine, and scientific research. Join host Ron Hipschman and get to know this intriguing element, see its blue plasma glow, and witness a welding demonstration using argon as a shielding gas with Exploratorium Building Operations Manager Chuck Mignacco.
In the spirit of amplifying the Black Lives Matter movement and to avoid any appearance of having appropriated that title, our series of talks formerly called Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table will now be called, simply, Tales from the Periodic Table. Please excuse the former title on videos made in the past.
