Supersonic: Pushing the Speed Limit
What if we can "feel" sound rather than just hearing it? Should we surpass the speed of sound to do it? Perhaps we should first listen to the experts about the dangers associated with playing such a fun science game. We'll overtake sound with Discovery's documentary Supersonic: Pushing the Envelope.
This stunning high-definition movie will serve as the springboard for a lively discussion about the science behind the beauty and wonder of nature.
Nisha Mohan, a graduate student in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science at Caltech, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
This is a special one-hour school-day performance. For more field trip opportunities, or to make reservations, please call Mary Herrera at (626) 395-6059 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
