FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Putting Man in Space – In this award-winning program on space exploration, intertwined with dramatic scenes of astronauts weightless inside the Shuttle, “spacewalking”, and magnificent spacescapes, are interviews with professionals such as Jerry Borer, who monitors the Shuttle’s propulsion systems; Michael See, who supervisors the ship’s landing phase; flight controller Gloria Araiza, and robotics engineers Larry Li and Anne Murray. Classroom guest: Astronaut Bonnie Dunbar.
