Exploratorium’s Helix Happy Hour | Peninsula
Is growth always good? The biggest threat to our existence on planet Earth isn’t asteroids— it’s us. Why can’t our population continue to grow? Learn about the exponential function and the conclusions we can draw from it from Exploratorium staff scientist Ron Hipschman.
How much can a Gummy bear drink? Join Exploratorium staff teacher and math enthusiast, Lori Lambertson, to find out how much liquid a gummy bear will absorb. They’ll make “Gummy Shooters” while exploring the growth of the bears in different dimensions.
