Wednesday, February 24, 2021 - 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm | Cost: FREE


Join us for Storytime Science-a storybook read-aloud, followed by a simple activity geared toward young children. This February, the Exploratorium’s own Vivian Altmann reads Black is a Rainbow Color, written by Angela Joy and illustrated by Ekua Holmes.

Color can be more than paint on a piece of paper. Sometimes color has special meaning. It can describe an emotion, a culture, a history, a connection to family, a way to see ourselves. Black may not be a color of the rainbow we see in the sky or paint on a page, but our activity shows that black is really all the rainbow colors mixed together.

For the color-mixing activity, you’ll need:

the three primary colors of paint-yellow, magenta (dark hot pink), and cyan (turquoise)
a white ice cube tray
at least four cups filled with water
at least three paint brushes
white paper
one or more pipettes or eye droppers
leaves, flowers, and/or small branches
pencil and paper to mark down your data

Then Viv will wrap things up with another poem!
