Cheer on the competitors in this zany science cook-off. Teachers compete before a live audience at the Exploratorium for the revered title, "Iron Science Teacher." The Exploratorium's Iron Science Teacher competition showcases science teachers as they devise demonstrations around a particular "secret" ingredient—and today's secret ingredient was oil! This presentation, originally recorded in 1992, is a meditation on a lifetime dedicated to music. The renowned Hindustani classical music master Ali Akbar Khan recounts the earliest days of his musical study with his father (including his 18-hour practice days); how he chose to play and master his instrument, the sarod (maybe it chose him); and how music can be a healing force. He plays the instrument and explains how it works and how it’s different from the more well-known sitar. Khan also discusses the founding of his music school in San Rafael, California, a manifestation of his philosophy that knowledge of music should be shared with others.

This After Dark event examined time's many faces through activities and presentations featuring honeybees, jump-shot photography, antique timepieces, and a performance by Gamelan Sari Raras. Annette Young Smith, along with her neighbors, transformed a littered patch of grass and weeds on a median strip in San Francisco's Bayview District into a lush neighborhood garden full of decorative and edible plants. Whether it's giant pumpkins or gorgeous orchids, people lavish attention upon these botanical marvels in the hopes of creating award-winning specimens.
