Open your eyes to the physics of natural phenomena with Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman. In this dynamic series, surprising visuals, real-time and recorded experiments, and intriguing objects illuminate wide-ranging presentations on topics such as color, time, fireworks, science fiction, and the universe. Each program is focused for general or adults-only audiences, and conversation is encouraged to help everyone find the same wavelength.

Since joining the Exploratorium in 1971, Ron Hipschman has worked as an exhibit developer, author, teacher, and webcast host. He currently works on the Exploratorium’s Environmental Initiative, implementing and maintaining a collection of environmental monitoring sensors and developing visualizations for the Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery’s super-resolution media wall. In addition to Full-Spectrum Science, Ron hosts the monthly After Dark series Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table.
