Join Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman for colorful explorations of the physical world.

What's the difference between heat and temperature? We use the terms interchangeably, but they have precise meanings to physicists. How does your thermostat work and how does a Thermos know to keep a hot thing hot and a cold thing cold? The mysteries will be revealed in this talk.

Note: There is limited capacity for this program; seating will be made available to visitors on a first-come, first-served basis.
