Exploratorium After Dark | Pier 15
Join them for a resonant presentation on sound at Full-Spectrum Science. Crawl through their pitch-black Tactile Dome. Also, play with hundreds of hands-on exhibits and experience an array of Explainer-led demonstrations. And grab dinner and drinks by the Bay.
What is sound? How high a pitch can you hear? Can you measure the speed of sound with a yardstick? Can two sounds add up to no sound? Explore these questions and more in this resonant 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.
