Zero in on the science of lasers with Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman this September during Full Spectrum Science: Lasers. Used in common household items like DVD players and printers, as well as for eye surgery, fusion energy research and much more, lasers are dynamic scientific tools. Learn how laser light is made, how this single technology can cut metal or help perform delicate surgery, and discover amazing facts about the phenomena of monochromatic wavelengths in this lively hour-long program. Full Spectrum Science: Lasers is on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 7pm, and Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 2pm, in the Exploratorium’s Central Gallery Classroom.

Full Spectrum Science, a dynamic series on the third Thursday and Sunday of each month, 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. All Full Spectrum Science presentations are included with admission to the Exploratorium.
