Join Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman for colorful explorations of the physical world.

Are the primary colors really red, yellow, and blue? What you learned in elementary school may be mistaken. How can you get the color yellow from mixing red and green together? Watch and find out.

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 also hosts Tales from the Periodic Table, about the building blocks of the universe: the Elements.
