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

Are the primary colors really red, yellow, and blue? How can you get yellow from mixing red and green together? Bring your most colorful questions to this vivid presentation.

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.
