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. In this new Everything Matters segment, take a closer look at a metal known since before human history: silver. You may have eaten with it, you may have worn it, you may even have paid for things with it—but you may surprised at some of the other places to find silver in the world. Everything Matters: Silver will be available on Facebook and YouTube.
