Explora demonstrates “Cool Science”

Cool Science, explora

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Science isn’t always the most popular subject, but there’s one museum trying to change that.

Explora, a museum described as part science center and part kids museum, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to demonstrate a fun science experiment themed Cool Science.

This week was all about inversion. This helps to learn why pollution seems more prevalent during the colder months. Pressure, density, temperature, and pollution all can lead to Albuquerque’s temperature inversion, where it appears that pollution is trapped about the city and obscuring the view of the Sandia’s. Watch above.

Also, find out about all the Explora programs, such as Parents Night Out for “Spooky Science” and their newest event Science of Beer that is going on Saturday, October 24 from 6:30pm to 10pm.
