If you think that mixing red and green will always give you a murky brown, would you be surprised to see them make yellow? Join Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman for a vibrant exploration into the physicality of color at Full Spectrum Science: Mixing Color. Come find out what the three real primary colors are, and discover other fascinating things at this multi-media presentation on the physics of color. Full Spectrum Science: Mixing Color is on Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 7pm, and Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2pm, in the Exploratorium’s Central Gallery Classroom.

Full Spectrum Science is a dynamic series on the third Thursday and Sunday of each month, that covers different aspects of physics, including sound, color, heat and temperature, and electrostatics. Each hour-long presentation includes hands-on activities and demonstrations. Thursday evening presentations are for adults ages 18 and up only, and Sunday daytime programs are for ages 6 years and older. All Full Spectrum Science presentations and are included with admission to the Exploratorium.
