Exploratorium Cookbook II: A Construction Manual for Exploratorium Exhibits by Ron Hipschman and the Exploratorium Staff
Mix up a healthy dollop of science and a dash of ingenuity—The Exploratorium Cookbook delivers everything you need to cook up your own versions of the interactive exhibits found on our museum floor.
Volume II contains 52 exhibit “recipes” related to mechanics, electricity and magnetism, visual perception, color and light, animal and plant behavior, the physics of sound, patterns, neurophysiology, and heat and temperature; each includes a description and detailed construction guidelines. An exhibit design checklist outlines important considerations (such as ventilation and longevity) to remember during construction.
Exhibit builders around the world have used this series to replicate our exhibits as well as to modify them and create their own—so put on your thinking cap and get cooking.
