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.
Agriculture – How do you feed the world with more and more people and less and less farmland? Experts in aquaculture, aeroponics, hydroponics and other exciting agricultural developments take viewers inside their experimental fields and greenhouses. If Arthur Galston of Yale University has his way, crops will be growing on Mars, helping create an atmosphere that could support human life. Locations include Tejon Farms, NASA/Ames Research and the Bodega Marine Laboratory. Classroom guest: Jimmy Smits.
