Availability information for this program

Exploring the World of Science for High School & Beyond. The award-winning, Show Me Science series, examines the most recent developments and discoveries in science and technology. Each program is designed to help students understand the vital role science plays in our everyday lives and is an excellent in-class, library or home schooling tool. The Show Me Science series covers subjects from Fish Farming to Solar Power, Biotechnology to Environmental Science. Students will develop a basic understanding of the fundamentals of Science and work their way up to more complex subjects. These programs show everyday, real - life application of the topic and how we are all affected by advancements in science and technology, often in ways we never realize. Produced in cooperation with an advisory board of top educators, curriculum specialists and administrators.


  • Biology & Chemistry: The Science of Forensics

    Anthropometry is the science that defines physical measures of a person's size, form, and functional capacities. Forensic science is the practical application of science to matters of the law. In criminal law, forensics science can help prove the guilt or innocence of the defendant. In civil actions, forensics can help resolve a broad spectrum of legal issues through the identification, analysis and evaluation of physical evidence. This program will discuss how new innovations and discoveries in forensic technology have important scientific applications beyond law.

  • Earth Science: A Look at Geology

    Geology is the study of the Earth, its processes, its materials, its history and its effect on humans and life in general. Rocks, crystals, mountains, earthquakes, volcanoes, rivers, glaciers, landslides, floods, and many other subjects fall into this broad field of research. This program looks at how geologists perform a wide range of critical services, including determining the stability of building sites, finding abundant supplies of clean water and searching for valuable deposits of natural resources such as iron, coal, and oil. More importantly, they also work to minimize the threat to communities at risk from geologic hazards.

  • Earth Science: Studying Oceanography

    While over 70% of the globe is covered by oceans, much of it remains a mystery. Its vast size, depth and power entice scientists to uncover the many secrets it holds. Oceanography is extremely multidisciplinary, covering the physics, chemistry, geology and biology of the world's oceans. No understanding of Earth's climate or the chemical cycles essential to life is complete without understanding the basics of oceanography. In this program we’ll learn about ocean ecosystems as well as marine life, currents and the impact they have on climate and humankind's existence.

  • Energy: Introduction to the Basics

    Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy warms our homes, cooks our food, plays our music, gives us pictures on television. Energy from the sun gives us light during the day. Energy is defined as "the ability to do work." When we eat, our bodies transform the energy stored in the food into energy to do work. When we run or walk, we "burn" food energy in our bodies. But where does energy come from? There are many sources of energy. In this program we’ll look at the energy that makes our world work. There are eight different forms of energy which are heat, light, sound, chemical, electrical, magnetic, nuclear and mechanical energy.

  • Engineering: Prosthetic Innovations

    Scientists and engineers have made great strides in recent years with prosthetics and orthotics. In this program we discuss how designers simulate the anatomy and physiology of missing limbs. Though some prosthetics are simple and minimally functional, others are complex bionic artificial limbs with improved designs, using advanced hydraulics, lightweight materials such as carbon fiber and computer microprocessors and sensors. This program will highlight how advances in prosthetics have improved life for people with certain injuries and disabilities.
