A Category 5 hurricane is a monster of a storm that most people would want to avoid. But, Civil Engineer Arindam Chowdhury actually recreates those monster hurricane force winds in hopes of helping people better prepare for the real thing. With support from the National Science Foundation, Chowdhury and his team at Florida International University and the International Hurricane Research Center designed a 15 foot tall Wall of Wind (WOW). The goal is to see if low rise structures and building materials can withstand the same wind forces they would face in a full-blown hurricane. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”

Wyoming has long been known as an energy exporter, from oil to natural gas to coal. The state is now booming with two other resources: wind energy and qualified technicians trained to build, install, and service the growth in wind turbine technology. With National Science Foundation funding, Laramie County Community College in Wyoming is becoming a national leader in training.
Can superhero Bruce Rain help reduce the effects of global warming? First he has to understand the relationship between greenhouse gases and the temperature of the Earth. Dr. Mother Nature also explains how the rising temperature of the Earth impacts various environmental and ecological systems. Part of "The Science of Climate" series.

Uses the fascinating setting of a circus to provide the analogy for growth. A magician creating the illusion of multiplying balls introduces microphotography, showing how cells divide and multiply. Shows how bones are continually being built and destroyed and, in a spectacular sequence of time-lapse photography, actually captures a tooth growing-from the moment it first appears out of the gum until it falls out.
Over 3500 years ago, a Minoan Community flourished on Santorini Island. Archeologists have discovered artifacts and frescos this Bronze Age civilizations left behind.

Part of the "Branches on the Tree of Life" series. Phylum Mollusca is the second most diverse phylum of animals, with over 100,000 known species. First examined are the basic characteristics of the phylum-a soft body, muscular foot, mantle cavity with gill, and hard calcified shell. Studies the four most familiar classes of molluscs (chitons, gastropods, bivalves, and cephalopods) in depth, viewing structure, life history, adaptations, and ecological interactions.
This national monument tells the story of the California’s Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Established in 1911 by presidential proclamation, Devils Postpile National Monument protects and preserves the Devils Postpile formation, the 101-foot high Rainbow Falls, and pristine mountain scenery.
