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

This Pride month, we'll look again at the rainbow in all its glory—from its meaning in the Pride flag to the optics of real rainbows to rainbows in art and popular culture. You’ll even learn how to make rainbows of your own with Ron Hipschman, host of the popular Full-Spectrum Science series. Note that this event is intended for audiences aged 13 and over. 

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.
