EXPLORATORIUM (1974, dir. Jon Boorstin)

Sound comes first: we hear the squeaks, whirrs, clicks of a machine that creates wave patterns onto paper that’s attached to a cylinder. Then we hear a handful voices say the title of the film, which is also the name of its subject The Exploratorium, the interactive science museum founded by physicist Frank Oppenheimer in 1969 at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. 1,320 more words

"I don't know..."

One of my favourite places in our school is the Exploratorium.  There are computers, both broken and functioning, sewing machines, soldering irons, saws, paint, etc.  It is quite a fun place to be when you get a handful of students going on whatever project it is that captures their interest at that given time. 444 more words
