Full-Spectrum Science 

When: Fourth Thursday of every month, 8 p.m. and Fourth Sunday of every month, 11 a.m., 2 & 3:30 p.m.

Science Class with a Twist

The Full-Spectrum Science series with Ron Hipschman blasts visitors into an interactive learning experience on the fourth Thursday and Sunday of every month. The Exploratorium has received praise for its "eccentrically original" exhibits since its 1969 inception, emphasizing a playful approach that makes learning a lot less scary, a little more mad-scientist. Hipschman, a resident scientist at the museum, does all this and a little more: his bimonthly installments attempt to answer questions we all have about physical phenomena, from the highest pitch detectable to a human ear to the yardstick measurability of a sound. His first principle: have a great time.
