Exploratorium | Pier 15, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
What’s the science behind fireworks? How are implosions different from explosions? What happens when hot water is combined with liquid nitrogen?
The Exploratorium’s After Dark: Boom celebrates July Fourth with rumbling, roaring, and spectacular explorations of supernovas, sonic booms, earthquakes, taiko drumming, stepping, and other resonant topics from 6-10 pm on July 4, 2013.
Learn how the percussive powers of pyrotechnics are a time-honored and indispensible feature of every Andean fiesta at a special screening of Gustavo Vazquez’s Playing with Fire (Jugando con Fuego).
Please note: You cannot see the fireworks from The Exploratorium as was previously listed. To ensure the best view, you may wish to congregate at Fisherman’s Wharf or Crissy Field.
One part theater, one part cabaret, one part gallery and one part Happy Hour, After Dark is a unique way to experience one of San Francisco’s most beloved museums. Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for members. 18 years and older only.
